Gordon Ashworth

A lovely follow up to his now defunct one man project, Concern. Quiet, beautiful, dense compositions featuring unaggressive white noise field recordings and beautiful textured ambiance straddling the line between melodic and abstract. Piano, guitar, strings (?), box harp (?) RIYL Concern, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma's Love Is a Stream, pretty Xela

*1. (3:35) Pretty swaying tones with sparse minimal guitar and quiet white noise
*2. (4:28) Rumbling soft noise with quiet pulses and string drones emerging from the white noise.
*3. (11:39) Pretty repetitive piano loops. Sounds like a slowed down Lubomyr Melnyk. Slowly becomes a fuzzy Continuous Music drone.
4. (10:25) Pretty lo-fi guitar melodies over field recordings, unintelligibly quiet conversations
*5. (8:58) Slow dramatic wandering acoustic guitar e.g. Steve Gunn
