I, Beast is the nom de guerre of Steve Libbey (Robotic Storm Cloud, ex-Scree, ex-Shut Ups) when he is working solely on guitar. His palette is all guitar (ok, there are a few drum samples in there) thoroughly effected and mangled. He describes it as “taking guitar as far out as it can go before tripping and dropping it.” The pieces are trippy, too, and atmospheric and textured, but not in a way that serves to soothe. It’s perhaps best suited for an overnight drive on a state highway without streetlights. Not for drugs. Definitely not for drugs.
