Our fifteenth release comes from Calmpound out of Nelson, BC. All the songs were recorded and written from 12-5am, hence the title Early Hours. At one moment he takes a minimalist approach, and at another he layers soundscapes with vocal samples and frenetic percussion. The contrast of sounds leave you submerged in the shadows while occasionally surfacing to find glimmers of warmth in the air.
"In no way did I set out to make a club or dance album, but I have been so deeply emerged in the culture for the past two years. Those styles inevitably crept into the framework of my music. This whole EP focuses very heavily on juxtaposing the soft melodic fog of some of my earlier productions with driving syncopated rhythms...music to dance to in the dark." -Calmpound
If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
