"Slow, sorrowful, and lush dronescapes that unfold calmly and thoughtfully... easily absorbed and brimming with emotion and conviction."
~ Everything is Fire

a brief introduction to If Thousands
Duluth, Minnesota's If Thousands began as an experimental music project in April 2000 by Christian McShane and Aaron Molina. McShane, a classically trained vocalist and guitarist; and Molina, a punk-rock bassist, tried various musical scenarios before deciding to abandon what they already knew and switch to instruments they had no idea how to play. Neither have had any formal training in the instruments they play in If Thousands. In this way, new soundscapes can be found through a naíve approach to instrumentation. The nature of the project is to continually seek new methods of musical expression through experimentation in order to create outstanding drone oriented music.
After a near ten year hiatus, If Thousands is back with an album of middle american slumber ambience called For.

listen on Silber
Minimalist drone, aggressive ambient, electro-acoustic, organic, whatever you call it to describe it doesn't change this from being a great record.
~ Brian John Mitchell, QRD

If Thousands classic first album.  Somewhere between ambient, drone, avant jazz, shoegaze, & experimental noise is where Candice Recorder record lies.  Probably their darkest album & a must listen for fans of bands like Coil & Goblin.
