'Weird Times' is Matt Jencik's debut solo album, in which he presents ten pure
ambient, abstract drone tracks. Each song has been written using samples of his
old, unused guitar riffs as their source. In composing them, he took that era of
his songwriting through a process of 'burial' by deconstructing the rock guitar
riffs and arranging them into very usable ambient sounds, and thereby developing
a new way of composing freely. Limited to 300 copies.

wizardry.

HTD     035     BYRON WESTBROOK         BODY CONSONANCE                 LP      09.2017

'Body Consonance' is the follow up to 'Precipice', Byron Westbrook's critically
acclaimed debut-LP from 2015. Taking a turn towards greater immediacy and using
ecstatic abstract rhythms, this 2017 album is far from ambient. Also operating in
visual contexts, Westbrook utilizes the binaural qualities of the stereo format to
sculpt three-dimensional sounds in perpetual motion, producing works that are both
pointillistic and psychedelic. 'Body Consonance' is a meditation on physicality,
a virtuosic choreography of sonic textures, colours and shapes woven together.
