Seth Chrisman :: Aetherdrift, Do You Copy? (Flaming Pines)

Lazy ambient drifts into stylus static, the sea washing up the shore insinuates itself into the conversation inside someone’s busy kitchen.

Seth Chrisman 'Aetherdrift, Do You Copy?'

This is not New Mexico native Seth Chrisman’s debut recording but it is the first under his given name. Behind the misleadingly retro-futuristic title and cover art (which is still terrific, like all Flaming Pines releases thus far) lurks a humid Central American idyll.

On a recent trip to Costa Rica, Chrisman gathered field recordings and captured the radio interference criss-crossing the airwaves at night. Lazy ambient drifts into stylus static, the sea washing up the shore insinuates itself into the conversation inside someone’s busy kitchen. The tranquil, down-home feeling is accentuated by the distracted, lazy plucking of guitar strings that winds the evening down. Balmy.

Aetherdrift, Do You Copy? is available on Flaming Pines. Buy at Flaming Pines
