Written just a week after 2018’s iconic “Make Me Know You Sweet”, this surreal, tripped-out sequel
from the headier alter ego of Brian Leeds (Huerco S.) is darker, dubbier and more alien than its
predecessor >> over an hour of ultra immersive, brain-fluxing hybridized sounds somewhere
between Chain Reaction vapourtrails and concrète dream-building.
Captured in one take shots during the weeks following the last album sessions in 2018’, Leeds’
second Pendant album treads a similar netherworld path, channeling a stygian dream-sick effect
that effectively explores a flipside to the sunnier prairies of his Huerco S.’ works, shoring us
somewhere gauzily redolent of early Wanda Group and the starkest Bellows emissions, but better
defined by eerily processed vocals and Lynchian sensibilities that locate it to North America’s dis/
possessed lands.
Ritualistic in craft and scope, the six extended tracks of ‘To All Sides They Will Stretch Out Their
Hands’ are all titled in reference to indigenous American poetry and thus take shape as elusive,
dream-like projections of Leeds’ subconscious and subvocalised thoughts. With a defocussed
grain and swirl that perhaps emulates the effect of intoxication thru special herbs, the music
acutely suggests altered states of mind, triggering meditations on memory and process reflected
by a haphazard and impromptu recording technique. Leeds is a skilled producer, and working
instinctively highlights a more fallible, arresting side to his sound - recording and processing
vocals on the fly to control his machines less like a conductor and more like a sculptor. When the
process hits complications - the DAW failing or outboard gear glitching out - his choice to leave
