"Delighted to announce that next in the Quiet Details series we have two of the most well-respected artists currently in modern ambient and experimental music, Ian Hawgood and James Murray, here as Slow Reels.

Ian is one of the people behind the legendary label Home Normal, plus has a vast discography of releases under his own name and in collaborations. A masterful exponent of magnetic tape, synthesisers and electro-acoustics - Ian is loved across the musical world for his deeply thoughtful production and curation. James runs the wonderful Slowcraft label, another fantastic outlet for some of the best ambient-leaning music around. His own productions are also of the highest calibre, exploring analogue and digital techniques to breath-taking effect. Also working on film scores and more, James is an artist with many talents.

Together they complement each other perfectly, as shown by the previous two Slow Reels releases - Farewell Islands (Morr Music) and Sustain (Fluid Audio). This is continued in stunning fashion here, they have made something quite wonderful with their latest album, Everyday Exotic.

Bringing all their melodic and textural sensibilities, they have created an album full of beautiful and deeply moving moments, always evolving, yet giving you enough time to fully immerse yourself in the harmonic wonder and the vast open spaces that only artists with their skill and experience can achieve.

Piano, electro-acoustics and field recordings meet incredibly creative synth-work and granular processing, creating a peerless marriage of layers and textures - you can feel the respect and affection these artists have for each other coming through every element - some collaborations just work and this is easily one of my most loved.
As each track moves gently and seamlessly into the next, the pacing and range of emotions are again a sign of musicians in full command of not only their tools, but also the human feeling behind what they are aiming to express.

To me, this is as close to sonic bliss as you can get, it's my great honour to share it with you.

The artwork was created as always influenced by the music and idea behind the album - this time originating from a picture of James' beautiful cockatiel friend Coco, which was then captured with analogue photography and processed here at quiet details studios.
As usual, the album is presented on the physical edition, with a custom 6-panel digipack and a separate fine art print too.
The CD also has a special long-form continuous mix of the album, representing the music in its purest form."
