Description: Stripped down to just one electric bass, two delay pedals and a volume controller, 'Repetitions' is the first ever release planned and recorded by just one core member of Minus Pilots. A serene drift is composed across two sides patching and pairing wistful bass strings with low fidelity crackle caused by the band's old Revox A77 reel-to-reel tape recorder, this is a delicate and captivating suite of sparse sound experiments carefully rustled together. Hushed murmurs with gentle keys. Highly recommended minimalism.
I came to this album (and label) via acloserlisten.com, and picked up the CD--great packaging!--through Stashed Goods. One of my favourite albums of 2016 that can be played at any time: it has such a nice relaxing feel to it that kind of washes over you as you listen. In places (e.g. "Before") it reminds me a bit of Ludovico Einaudi. Great stuff! Gordon
Even if he says otherwise, Ian Hawgood is super prolific and incredibly talented in not only his own releases, but in collaborations and with the heart & soul put into the labels he's run over the years.
Saying all that, this is a more recent favorite release of Ian's: peaceful, deceivingly simple (yet not!) piano works that is personal, elegant and graceful in its warmth and presentation. Plus it's for a wonderful cause. Get it!! Joe Borreson
"Dissolve" shows a lot of unique and emotional layers and textures. To people who haven't heard this so far, you need to hear this because this is what ambient deserves to be: slow, drifting, and able to evoke emotions which they do perfectly. 6 amazing songs to get lost inside. Visual Complexity
