New Music: ROCK MP3’s Thin Barrier

a2505797321_10.jpg

Thin Barrier bears the ambient fruits of an hour-long live improvisation on Peterborough’s Trent Radio during winter solstice. The album features dreamy guitar loops fed through a Casio SK-1 keyboard, field recordings gathered in Mairena Del AlcorBellaterra, and Peterborough, and live sampling from Jake Ryan’s phone.

Cacophonous church bells, tumbling microphone blowouts, silky percussive grazes, interlocking guitar melodies, and bobbing samples create the sense of being cradled by branches in the wind, weaving and swaying under the slow transit of clouds. Listen seamlessly.

Best Tracks: Untitled I, Tintinnabulation, Untitled III, and The Rest Of It
