Chris Weeks :: Trip (Odd John) / The Cloud (Self-Released)

Weeks has pursued a predilection for exploration of the floating and psychic vibrations of space-scapes, tranches of droning chord continua and brooding bass frequencies dwelt on, when not taken on minimalism-fuelled detours, prey to particulate play, subject to unreadable communications and electronic interference.

V/A :: Verdant (Herb)

There is an overflow of styles buried here that gracefully places its signature on a variety of sonic colors, predominately green (as the cover suggests). Elaborating on the strengths of their roster of talent and veering left of any one particular path, this seventeen-track manifesto is a proverbial forest of lush, organic branches. [Listen | […]
