Presenting ... "New Beginnings (waag_rel037)" by Stephen Briggs
I love Stephen Briggs' particular brand of looping ambient guitar-orientated soundscapes and I am proud to present his latest release - "New Beginnings (waag_rel037)".
According to Stephen, this is an album that explores themes of newness ... the newness of planted grass seed ... and of space ... the freedom of open space. Inspired by hot evenings and watching the water spraying on freshly pruned trees, "New Beginnings (waag_rel037)" is a delight from start to finish ... best enjoyed in a single sitting, this is the kind of sound that washes over you in a way that both invigorates and inspires.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have ... "New Beginnings (waag_rel037)" is a welcome addition to the weareallghosts canon.
An MP3 version of this album is available for free on Archive or a lossless version available on Bandcamp for 'pay what you want' which does include £0 (albeit paying supporters also get unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app).
All tracks are live improvisations using guitar and pedals. There is no overdubbing and no PC gubbins involved. It was recorded live ... mistakes, foibles and all.
