"Fallen Smoke captures the live debut, from April 2008, of Rambutan, the solo project of Eric Hardiman from Century Plants and Burnt Hills. Vastly different than either of those units, Rambutan finds Hardiman in a completely new mode, with no guitars in sight. The results are hauntingly beautiful, intensely personal, and utterly compelling, with a warm, organic feel throughout. The music builds in intensity ultimately hypnotizing the listener in its gathering tractor beam of psychedelic gauzy haze. Jump right in."

"CDR Debut solo release from Eric Hardiman of Century Plants and Burnt Hills. From ghostly noisescapes to swirling organic drone plateaus to pure guitar improvisations, Hardiman floats in and out of various sound worlds on this one, yet always ties things together with a thoughtful and compelling sonic thread. Four tracks recorded basement style deep in the night, and it shows. Dig in, yet another surprise from the Century Plants camp. "
