boycalledcrow Deep ambience, unsettling textures and dramatic composition. Fantastic work. Favorite track: TFW it's 400 am and you've been up 3 times already.

Andrulian An excellent EP, it almost defies categorisation so I'm not going to try, because that misses the point. 


It's superbly arranged and produced, ambience contrasts against white noise / drones and field recordings giving an immersive sound that is strangely calming and disconcerting at the same time Favorite track: TFW it's 400 am and you've been up 3 times already.

Allister Thompson Definitely the trippiest album about parenthood I've ever heard. It is truly impressive how this artist blends various ambient/noise/post-rock/shoegaze and post-punk styles into an ecstatic and distinctive wall of sound. Favorite track: MRW I Drop the Passie in the Dark.

about

“Giant Eyes & Infant Steps”, the first 2019 release from ambient, post-rock sound artist Whettman Chelmets, finds himself exploring the textures and caustic lullabies his newborn daughter has brought with her in 2018. New babies bring a lot of white noise and arpeggios, and the work is very much influenced by these familiar, every day sounds.

Originally premiered on the Phantom Circuit Radio program on Resonance Extra radio in the UK. Many thanks for the feature.
