Since 2008 the experimentalist musician Kevin Sanders has recorded different works under the name of PETALS . With PETALS and until date he has recorded exactly 10 albums and 3 ep´s, most of them throught his own independent label "Hairdryer Excommunication" or another labels like "Beartown Records", "Striate Cortex Records" or "Afternoons Modeling". His musical style has several changes it depend of the album, but almost always there are two common points: drone and noise. There is some album noisier but I choose this one because I think that pretty much sums up the formula of the artist. "Caress (and care less)" consists of a single, unique and long track (over 20 minutes) in which the noise is very moderate and content, and there are constant effects and sounds reminiscent of the typical ambient and drone landscapes. The sound and noise here conveys a sense of total absence of hurry or stress, but on the contrary, conveys a sense that induces calm, quiet and reflection. Very good impression my first contact with PETALS.
