Why do we like this?

With one having released new material just earlier this year and the other rumored to be working a new album scheduled for next, Brian Eno and My Bloody Valentine frontman Kevin Shields team up here for a once-off, exclusive track as part of Adult Swim's annual Singles series. It sounds like it should be a match made in heaven, and it absolutely is.

Combining Eno's mastery of ambience and restraint. with Shields' capacity to create expansive walls of sound, the two find common ground in their love of atmosphere and ability to create and control it with practiced effortlessness. The track is a nine-minute flood of rich and ethereal decaying drones, heavily layered and processed, to gently submerge you. They bulge and stretch before subsiding, only to come surging back again.

Both these men are masters of composition and production by now and "Only Once Away my Son" is what happens when you give free rein to such virtuosos. Seemingly effortlessly, they have created something supreme, ambitious and utterly gorgeous.
