Readers who visit frequently know that I have a few artists and labels who I am happy to champion because they never let me down in terms of quality of music or their curating abilities. I’m happy to add another label to this list: Lost Tribe Sound.
The label is based out of Wisconsin, and if you enjoy rich, resonating dark ambient music which blends field recordings seamlessly into their compositions, this label is going to keep your attention for a good long while. The label releases music by such luminaries as Seabuckthorn, William Ryan Fritch and Tony Dupé, and now, they offer a series of releases via subscription. Take this one seriously, as the music is stunningly rich.
The Salt and Gravity Series is a bundle of eight albums slated for release in October 22, 2021. This sampler gives you a taste of what to expect. As I understand it, water seems to be a running theme in this album. The sounds on each track are rich, but as it stands right now, this particular track stood out for its musical ambience: Stilaan by Belgian composer ‘t Geruis:
The price for the bundle is about $40, but you receive:
• Instant download the songs previewed here
• A Subscription Discount of 10% off our retail price (Normally $50)
• Bandcamp DL codes for all 8 releases (emailed day of release)
• Discount code for 10% off all backcatalog and future releases through the end of 2022.
The curation of this label is phenomenal. I look forward to hearing much more.
