Matt Sewell’s A Crushing Glow Presents: DrumTalk / Caroline True

The Celestial Garden sort of Electro-Sambas towards its breakdown. Where upon it floats in a flurry of synthesised flute. Kind of Antena, given 21st Century bass heft, meets New Age. If mixed by Motion Graphics.

Out Of The Blackness, Into The Blue is a tune for dawn. Electronics that evoke images of woodland, and wildlife. Nature`s chorus. If not organic, then decidedly analogue. With vintage sounds sometimes fuzzy, distorted. As if they might have been sampled from a 78. A rhythm box metronome stuttering “Tch Tch Tch Tch Tch Tch Tsssss” and the Kosmische pastoral of Cluster`s Sowiesoso sharing birdwatchers binoculars with Basil Kirchin`s Charcol Sketches and Brian Bennett`s Early Spring.

You can order a copy direct from Caroline True. The artwork and packaging, as only to be expected from Mr. Sewell and the Crushing Glow series, are amazing.

DrumTalk also put together this really nice mix to help promote the release.
