On Random Harvest, their seventh album in 10 years, Friends of Dean Martinez have written another soundtrack for a movie that doesn’t exist. The bandís music is dusty and mysterious, obviously influenced by the Friends’ hometown of Tucson, a desert city that mixes Old West and Mexican cultures. As on their previous albums, the band works disparate styles, from Western to drone, post-rock to heavy metal (it’s true), to create a seamless flow of instrumental music featuring pedal steel guitar, mournful organs, spare percussion, strings and eerie slide guitar work. The results are often haunting, though occasionally tedious, as songs meander, avoiding melody lines and searching for an end that doesn’t justify its means.
