New American acoustic writer Maya Weeks will preside over Andrew Weathers in December 2021 on the label Full Spectrum.It is a debut cassette released from.

Includes 4 ambient collage-spoken word songs. DL code included. Andrew Weathers is in charge of mastering.

Below is a description of the label.

Well, you've finally got up. 2021 was just like the roller coaster of the Solar Revolution.In retrospect, Full Spectrum has welcomed a new artist to the label family this year with a whopping 23 releases.Some of them are performing live, which is a big improvement compared to 2020.

To conclude, we bring you the debut of California-born Caucasian settlers Maya Weeks, a writer, artist and geographer. Named Tethers, this album is as short and ephemeral as a splash of water from the sea on your face, like a faint breeze.However, despite the short time of 16 minutes, the beauty and impact of this album remains the same.

"Tethers," co-produced by Weeks with Andrew Weathers, whom he met during Mills College, is a collage of audio files taken from January to June of this year.Looped synthesizers, voice memos, and field recording fragments are combined into a blissful patchwork-like sound that makes you feel intimate and unknown at the same time.

This album is centered around environmental sounds shot in two locations on the California coast.Cayucos (the residence of the Chumash and Salinan tribes) and Bodega Bay (the settlement of the Miwoks).Weeks grew up in Cayucos and is currently affiliated with the Bodega Marine Lab in Bodega Bay, where he studies marine pollution.In particular, I am trying to understand this artificial destruction of the environment as a form of violence performed by masculistic and capitalist norms of European origin.

Over the past year, and then in the production of "Tethers," Weeks listened to these two lands that are changing as production, consumption, and consumption change.This deliberate listening practice has become her attempt to slow down and tackle the desperate crescendo of our lives facing the impending collapse of capitalism. Tethers is our invitation to join this pursuit with Weeks.

"Well, it's finally happened. All good things must come to an end, but 2021 was certainly a wild roller coaster of a solar revolution. Looking back – Full Spectrum welcomed a whole fresh crop of artists into our label family this year and published a whopping 23 [!] releases. Some of us even managed to play a few shows here and there, a marked improvement over 2020.

To round things out and close the book on the year that was, we are pleased to present the debut from California-born white settler writer, artist, and geographer Maya Weeks. Entitled'Tethers,' this one is but a subtle breeze of an album, as brief and transitory as the ocean's spray across your face. Clocking in at a svelte 16 minutes, though,'Tethers' is no less lovely and impactful for its brevity.

Co-produced with Andrew Weathers, who Weeks knows from her time at Mills College,'Tethers' consists of collaged audio files captured between January and June of this year. Snatches of looped synthesizer, voice memos, and field recordings fall together into a blissed out patchwork of sound that feels somehow both intimate and unknowable all at once.

The album is built around environmental sounds captured in two places on the California coast: Cayucos [on occupied Chumash and Salinan land] and Bodega Bay [on occupied Miwok land]. Weeks grew up in Cayucos and she is now affiliated with the Bodega Marine Lab in Bodega Bay, where she conducts research on marine pollution. man-made environmental catastrophe as a form of violence enacted by masculinist, capitalist norms with European origins.

Over the course of the past year – and subsequent production of'Tethers' – Weeks listened to these two locales as they underwent processes of change due to shifts in production, consumption, and expendability. This intentional listening practice became her attempt to slow down and work against the frantic crescendo of our lives in the face of capitalism's impending collapse.'Tethers' is our invitation to join Weeks in this pursuit.
