A pleasant find. Alex Luquet, the aforementioned Sailcloth, is an American composer based in Pennsylvania who works with a double bass, synthesizers and guitar which, in turn, produce engaging drone-scapes. The tones are rich, easy to get lost in (you might be picking up on a theme in that I really enjoy letting my mind wander to music – it is the best sort of music for me), and he’s joined by musicians who really seem to be in sync with his playing. The personnel include:
Alex Luquet: upright bass, keyboards, synthesizers, guitars
Felicia Vee: drums on Red Woods, guitar on Wrens, synth on Grackles
Saher Khan: clarinets on Red Woods and Woodcut
Jasmine Woodson: harp on Red Woods
John Morgan Kimock: drums on Power Station Cinders
A very good Saturday morning listen. Thanks to Ryan at Lost Tribe Sound for pointing this treasure out to me. I’m indebted.
