David Tagg makes his first appearance on WR with an insanely beautiful double album of ambient synth drones titled simply WR027 (the catalog number of the release). This double cassette reissue was formerly released as a 25 copy only double CD titled EEDCD-07 at the now retired Expanding Electronic Diversity label.

WR027 is comprised of 8 long-form drone works constructed of synthesizer, field recordings and reel to reels. Each of these two cassettes are loosely based on the themes “day” and “night”. While cassette one (day) explores more airy textures and warmer sides of the color spectrum, cassette two (night) functions on a more subdued and introspective level.

After the sun goes down, shadows reclaim the landscape with colder hues, inviting you into a moon-lit melancholy bliss. Beautiful waves of shimmering ambience melt gracefully over deep oscillating bass tones that seem to drift into a sleepy eternity. Absolutely gorgeous work by David Tagg filled with depth and feeling. Masterfully executed electronic minimalism! And as if this album could have gotten any more beautiful than it already was, our man Brian Grainger did an absolutely breathtaking mastering job for this special cassette reissue. Heavenly…

New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
