My Fun :: This Is All I Had Time For (The Land Of)

My Fun’s ambient is very homey and close to life. It breathes with the same rhythm as its listener and has dog-eared corners, some scratches on the surface and a bit of dust in the corner.

My Fun ‘This Is All I Had Time For’

[Release page] Justin Hardison shrugs that life, as is its wont, got in the way and didn’t leave much time over to make new music this past year, so he humbly proffers a small selection of his online “sound journal,” where for the past few years he has posted “field recordings, improv sessions, late night vinyl loops, radio noises and basically any sound around me.”

My Fun’s ambient is very homey and close to life. It breathes with the same rhythm as its listener and has dog-eared corners, some scratches on the surface and a bit of dust in the corner. It is not transportive but rather transitional, turning the everyday into an unassuming soundtrack of the mysteries of domesticity. Though unaware of precisely what he has recorded, the muffled clatter of “Long Distance” could be the kitchen sink counterpart to a fragile Japanese wind chime. Blustery weather outside and snatches of casual conversation indoors is consecrated with harp glissandi on “Unwind.” “The Sea, The Sea” is the most literal of the six tracks—undulating gently, it is what it says it is. “Car Alarm Birds” on the other hand seems to have nothing to do with car alarms but rather lively neighborhood birdsong falling silent at nightfall. The two minute coda “Saturday” sounds like “Long Distance” and “Unwind” combined and unwound backwards.

And that’s all I have time for. Except to say that visiting My Fun’s sound journal is time fun spent.

This Is All I Had Time For is available on The Land Of. [Release page]
