20 or so years ago, Kevin Doria and Joe DeNardo emerged from the Olympia underground under the name GROWING, proffering a signature blend of noise and mood they refer to as “big amp ambient.” Their latest is called Diptych, a two-sided long form epic at once meditational but also ecstatic, out on Ethan Miller of Howlin’ Rain’s Silver Current Records imprint. To celebrate its release, DeNardo and Doria have assembled Horizon Music For Anytime of Day, a blend expansive jams.
