Transient Waves

Having previously released material on the Che and Darla labels, Philadelphia-based three-piece Transient Waves emerged from within the shifting network of US ‘post-rock’ operators that came to prominence at the latter half of the nineties - abandoning the linear drive and dynamics of traditional rock in favour of a more diffuse, textural approach that included the use of the sampler and a shift away from the foregrounding of the ‘song’ and the ‘voice’.

Like peers Fuxa, Labradford, Bowery Electric and numerous acts on the Kranky label, Transient Waves’ sound was rooted in the drifting, disembodied textures of the processed guitar - layers of sound overlapping in a blissed-out, shimmering ambience.
