Sounds such as Invisible City and Falt ~ Irish acoustic artist Nicolas Maloney, who has released works from drone labels, released a limited edition of 2020 copies from the experimental label enmossed in Maine, USA in November 11.

Contains 5 drone songs. DL code included.It is out of print.

 

Edition of 75. Professionally dubbed type I cassettes with silkscreened j-cards using water-based ink on recycled paper.

From Jackson, Mississippi, Nicholas Maloney carves a vision of lo-fi atmosphericana. Though there is some use of traditional instruments, like guitar, organ and banjo, Lignum Muzek functions more like a weather vane. Field recordings of natural spaces around Mississippi result in bouts of almost-silences, which are less sound, more detectable pressure change. But then there's the occasional insect, a sheet metal's melody. A barely recognizable trombone, the sigh of trees.

Minimalist in arrangement but planetary in room size, the longform tracks move between spatial experiment and texture-as-mood. Wood has a heavy presence on the album—Maloney saws it, throws it off a roof onto a shed. But musique concrète is just One of the tape's dimensions. There are affective swells, romantic and buoyant, but still they retain a climatological sensibility.
