I’m so excited to share my new album with all of you! Dreamsill is my second LP, with limited cassettes available from Good Glass Records.
This was a big project for me, having been recorded from January of 2018 through June of 2019, and my first work to get a physical release. From the start I wanted to make an album that was more than the sum of its parts and that felt like a complete work rather than just a collection of songs. I also wanted to create an album that spanned a wide breadth of emotions, where the songs hold very different feelings from each other but still share some common connection. The way a night’s series of dreams seem individually distinct, yet inseparable from the rest, and leave you with an indescribable patchwork emotion that lasts into the day.
The album is almost entirely synthetic but very natural sounding. I wanted to get away from grid based sequencing and rigid tempos, and the rhythms in these songs push and pull against themselves. I won’t get too far into the nerdy weeds here unless people want to know more, but the main instruments on this album were a 7u 84hp modular system, Digitakt, Mopho x4, and Odyssey.
Thanks to all of you that have lent me advice and support through this process! I hope you enjoy the album.
Tapes come with a vinyl sticker shown in the images below.
