Damaged Hymns From The Broken Midsouth

Hickory Withe, Tennessee, circa 2016

 

Emerging from the ruins of acclaimed North Carolina ambient/drone duo Lost Trail, Nonconnah is the newest experiment in spaced-out instrumental sonics from Zachary and Denny Corsa. Named for a mysterious creek running along the borders of their new home of the Memphis area, the Corsas are now joined by multiple skilled collaborators in expanding Lost Trail’s heady blend of swirling shoegaze guitar layers, otherworldly field recordings, and eerie tape collages. The result is a series of fresh explorations into the dark attics and deepest fathoms of the world looming beyond this world, or at least fleeting glimpses through the thinning veil that hangs between them.

"Nononnnah have delivered a collection of music that is the very definition of beguiling. From the outset this stuff is immediate, engaging, mesmeric....if you have a mate that says shit like ‘Yeah, but what’s the point in drone rock?’ you can respond, ‘Dead Roses, Digged up Zombies, Broken Pieces of Diamonds, Live Cats’ - Popbollocks

"Abstracting the states of awareness induced by our machines, mentalities and media is what the best visual art regularly does in the contemplative surroundings of a gallery, and this album, with many layers of rich, visceral sonic textures packed into each track, does much the same. Give it a listen and imagine where a slow, increasingly unearthly elevator ride into space might take you." - The Memphis Flyer

"As gloriously spectral as ever...haunted Americana at its finest" - The Wire

"...hushed moments of uncomplicated beauty...rich and complex, capable of coaxing surprisingly deep emotions to the surface." - The 405

"The droning soundscapes...are as disorienting as they are absorbing." - The Austin Chronicle

 

"A noisy but tender selection of shoegaze-influenced drone music...it's like awakening thousands of years from now on a distant planet and the first thing your android eyes see is a gorgeous alien sunrise." - Issues 

'I’ve gorged on this album over the past few days, it’s wonderful. Apart from a few other bits and pieces I’ve not really listened to much else in that time. It’s an hour of superbly crafted noise and drones' - I Heart Noise


"Nonconnah really deliver with this full length – providing a listen that is truly rewarding and only improves on repeat" - Eternity Tree

 

"It is quite impressive how this - in the most positive sense of the word - fragmentary and fragmented music and this high number of tracks does not create a fragmentary work, but a coherent album that reveals more details with each new listen." - African Paper

"Never less than a sonic feast covered in the best condiments, sometimes all at once" - Tiny Mix Tapes 

"Tempts the listener to be impaled on the sonic rocks hidden in the aural spectre. The music is deep and complex adding to its devilishly dark sonic imagery. This is very cool stuff as we have come to expect from this accomplished group." - Floorshime Zipper Boots 

"Sorta ecstatic, which lends a trippy yet happy feel' - Deep In The Music

"...bliss blistering and heavenly haloing, a beautifully serene renewal veers into view bathing all in a deeply spiritual oneness...really is most beguiling' - Mark Losing Today

"Purists, take heart. This is the sort of drone that allows you to simply put it on, lay back on that couch, and drift into the stasis pod." - The 405

"...you’ll be pleased to know that their trademark noxious soundscapes and aural degradation flourish here in seamless abundance with all the beauty one’d expect." - I Heart Noise

"...The title of the album, its cover, the song titles (how’s ‘Our Secrets Kept Forever’?) all speak of that borderline where intrigue, excitement, joy, insecurity and fear all intermingle and cross into each other’s territory. In essence, it is music of creating an atmosphere that shifts in mood..." - Echoes and Dust 

"The five tracks are full on experimental drones and ambient escapades in the cold nether regions of experimental music. Deep and dense, with field recordings, synths and noise, the EP brings to light sinister grey scenes and imagery that will satiate the most forlorn wintry soul. Embrace the cold, dark reality of the season and hunker down by the fire with imaginative ambient textures and unique sonic themes." - Floorshime Zipper Boots

"The expressive depths and heights achieved within TG&TG are nothing short of astonishing. The moment when music surpasses mental satisfaction and achieves spiritual satisfaction is both uplifting and grounding....with songs moving past beautifully like unknown towns through your car window. Tones evoke nostalgia, melancholy, humble warmth and old wisdom. A delicate balance of pain and purity, wistfully guiding the listener in a tour of emotion...a rich and satisfying experience." - Eternity Tree 

"The fuzzy image adorning the cover matches this noisy liminal music, which puts the listener in a strange state between waking and sleeping, and which perhaps represents winter in all its ambivalence." - African Paper

"Initial appearances can be deceiving, because Nonconnah’s new album seems to warp over time. The husband and wife duo were Lost Trail in a past life, but their music together has shifted into a new season. Much of that earlier sound is still intact: those hazy, spectral layers are added to dreamy harmonies that sleepwalk through thickets and brambles, walking in the soft autumn light and then going further beyond." - Fluid Radio

"The EP reflects a season in suspension, drawing a line from the fallen leaves to the snow, separating the piano notes like flakes.  A sense of distancing envelops these tracks, as if removed from the gaudy segment of festivities.  There is deep contemplation to be found here, and sullen, rusted beauty." - A Closer Listen

"Powerful and beautiful at the same time!" - Yeah I Know It Sucks

"Deliver(s) a chilly blast through the room....the glacial floe minds the listener of the sounds of creaking ice." - Emerging Indie Bands

"...further develops their wondrously perceptive strain of musical history." - Notes From Left Of The Dial (Nooga.com)

"A subtle and blissful gathering of sounds." - Eternity Tree

"...spacious, broad, quiet, with an emptiness that might mean melancholy to some listeners, freedom to others." - Chain DLK

"A long journey through the sound of light and the things found along the starlit path. the album also presents something alien to most people making it particularly unique. The odd sounds, guest stars, and care given across the album are what sets this above..." - Skull Valley

"This vagueness of sounds, in which they are similar yet out of focus and indistinct, is typical of the Nonconnah sound." - Evilsponge
