Guardian Alien cites their influences by the sun, moon and Tao. Debuting this month on Thrill Jockey Records is their immersive, single-track record (better described as an escapade) entitled See the World Given to a One Love Entity. It begins somewhere off the noise-rock zenith and progressively descends to vacant space, inhabited only by passing samples and a distant drone. Their spiritual influence also borrows tribal percussion styles honed by the tension of drummer Greg Fox (Dan Deacon, Teeth Mountain, Liturgy). But 37 minutes just isn’t long enough for a proper explosive meditation; Guardian Alien was conceived by live performance. The band is naturally driven by vibes — come make them better. With Anwar Sadat. —Lara Kinne
