Saaad is the Tolouse-based drone project by Romain Barbot, who works together with Greg Buffier. The duo have released on labels like Hands In the Dark and BLWBCK and have collaborated with sonic surrealists such as Insiden for Paris' In Paradisum imprint, but Saaad land on Russia's fledgling Grains Of Sand Records for their outing. Much like their previous output, Delayed Summer is a cinematic, HD-quality drone masterpiece, where apocalyptic swells of sound spread across a vast landscape. The opener "Pole (Jam XIV)" is ringing and full of doom, while other pieces such as "I Can Feel You (Jam III)" are more sinister and could easily accompany any sci-fi film made between 1970 and 1999. This is serious stuff, it's for the sound sommelier.
