Copy Me: RSM Tribute 12 (Self Released)
Tim Graffuis, Glenn Case, Simon Waldram and others covering R. Stevie Moore
Four Sevens (Secular Pineapple)
Ambient Layers (7K!)
Ambient Layers is the third in the ‘layers’-series, preceded by Piano Layers (2019) and String Layers (2020). Together, the series is a perfect proof of the label’s dedication.
While Piano Layers and String Layers presented a rather coherent selection of piano and string music, ‘ambient’ must have been a bit more difficult to compile because it is a rather diffuse genre tag. Some ambient has beats, some have strings and/or piano, others can be quite abstract. – Ambientblog
Featuring Pjusk, Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid), Midori Hirano, Robert Lippok and more.
