Atlantic Drone is the brainchild of artist and musician, Steven Cerio. AT is improv prog psych rock, featuring some of Steve's musical friends, such as Dave Rick (Yo La Tengo, Bongwater, etc), Michael from the Dustdevils, Sal from the Thing, and Jim from Toothfairy. Atlantic Drone creates a stream of ambient sounds that carry you far into mind and space.
Here is a review from StonerRock.com...
This is not your typical stoner rock album. While it probably belongs in the techno bin, it also fits very nicely under the psychedelic umbrella. It reminds me of a drone CD I heard back in high school, which sounded like hundreds of angry bees buzzing around a pulsing orb. The type of record that makes the walls shake and the room cave in on you when you’re peaking on acid - totally engrossing and encapsulating. Atlantic Drone is slightly more modern, but it’s still quite a trip. It sounds like it was improvised, but clearly there was some studio wizardry at work.
The mastermind behind this project is Steve Cerio (drums/programming). Steve has played with a number of different bands, but is most well known for his artwork that he did for the Residents. There are a lot of guest guitarists on this CD, including Dave Rick (Yo La Tengo, Bongwater, King Missile, Phantom Tollbooth), Michael Duane (Dustdevils), Laure Barges (Dragibus), Sal Canzonieri (Electric Frankenstein, The Thing), Greg Pier (Mandate of Heaven), Joseph Plessas and Jim Gibson (Toothfairy, Unholy Swill).
The first track “Little Miss Expanding Universe” gives you a good taste of what is in store for your head. Manic jazz drumming, ethereal effects, spry guitar, children’s voices, and some strange noises that one would be hard pressed to identify (such as the theremin). Songs like “Fake Lashes on a Flapper” feature an eerie spoken monologue. Saxophones come into play on “The Nothing Bad Ever Happens Dub”. The acid jazz flows freely and the songs melt together into a huge orange gelatinous Jello mold. This is not some silly hippie drivel; this is some quality mind music, in the same vein as early Pink Floyd and Soft Machine. I recommend this to all fans of early psychedelic music and jazz rock.
