Presenting ... Dusty Fallout (waag_rel143) by Eraser Ears


When Jaime Munárriz came to me and offered up another live recording from his Eraser Ears [Orejas Borradoras] collective, I jumped at the chance.

I love the soundscapes that they produce because they remind me of Tangerine Dream's seminal mid-70s period: albums like "Rubycon" and "Phaedra" were instrumental in my love and understanding of the broad church called "ambient music" ... and Eraser Ears do remind me of these spontaneous adventures in sound.

"Dusty Fallout" as this most recent session has been called is split over two 35+ minute pieces. It would have been one whole piece but Bandcamp's file-size limitation necessitated a break in proceedings.

These soundscapes are to be savoured and enjoyed ... preferably on headphones. Let them take you on a journey ... let them take you, as they have me, to another place.

I hope you enjoy these soundscapes as much as I have.

A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
