Sounds such as Invisible City and Falt ~ A new work by Irish ambient writer Nicolas Maloney, who has released works from drone labels, will be released from enmossed in a limited edition of 2020 copies in November 11.Includes 75 songs where concrete sounds and ambience that slowly grows from banjo and guitar comfortably intersect. DL code is attached.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.
