Our sixth release comes from Calmpound out of Nelson, BC. He follows up his Wen Im Alone release from May with a peaceful yet focused collection of live compositions. The concept of Impulses circles around the ideas of concentration, patience, and intoxication. Each instrument track is a single take and Calmpound showcases his versatility by singing and playing guitar and keys in subtle fashion. It was performed, recorded, and mixed through a Zoom R-24.
"The whole song took me over. I believe the sombre and introspective mood of the song comes from a few traumatic experiences that I've been through and never really dealt with escaping from me…like some kind of involuntary lethargic therapy. Impulses was built with closed eyes in three days." -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
