Eternal Tapestry biography
Portland/Oregon based ETERNAL TAPESTRY started in the fall of 2005, first only featuring two guitarists Nick Bindeman and Dewey Mahood. They began to play free improvised stuff together, with lots of layered ambient sound and krautrock references. A few musicians came and went around this time until Nick's younger brother Jed (drums) moved to Portland in the summer of 2006 to become a steady member. The trio made some recordings which were published on limited CD-R and cassette productions soon.

In 2009 Krag Likins (bass) and Ryan Carlile (saxophone, synth) joined the band, completing the current quintet. 'The Invisible Landscape' and 'Palace Of The Night Skies' were the first two albums produced and released under professional circumstances. 2011 saw the next album 'Beyond The 4th Door' on Thrill Jockey which strikes due to melodic, atmospheric guitar improvisations presented with a trippy and spacey fundament.

All members of ETERNAL TAPESTRY are very active in the experimental underground and collaborate with diverse other projects too.

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

3 stars With 'Beyond The 4th Door' ETERNAL TAPESTRY established the collaboration with the wellknown Thrill Jockey label. The album comes withs five songs showcasing enormous jamming potential - the twin guitar interaction ranks foremost here, synths and saxophone take a backseat overall. Basically one can follow relaxed slow-paced jams, which probably are able to augment your depressive mood. So this is ambivalent. When you're able to get involved with after some time this will totally wrap you up with shoegaze respectively ambient tendency.

Visualised I can imagine some thursty people plodding along through a sandstorm while searching for a waterhole. Nick Bindeman's and Dewey Mahood's plaintive guitars, a deep bass provided by Krag Likins, Jed Bindeman's carefully accentuated drums - this sounds like coming from deep in the desert somehow. Galactic Derelict marks an exception featuring some stoner rock approach, here they come out of hiding, in comparison even somewhat outraged if you will.

The impressive melancholic silky guitar work is the album's highlight. I assume you're in a good temper when listening to this sort of heavily loaded desert space rock. On this occasion you might sense a revelation. 'Beyond The 4th Door' is a nice album, however this sounds a bit single-tracked overall what counts as a little disadvantage for me - 3.5 stars finally.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
