Eilean Records

Beautiful sound collages with lush textures and subtle harmonies. Field recordings, snippets of melodies, fleeting samples, some wordless or indecipherable male and female vocals at points. Nothing is ever too loud or too harsh FCC clean

RIYL Tim Hecker, Aloonaluna, Pascal Savy

*2. (4:41) Lulls in a dramatic melody. Piano, hushed violin, water noises, a passing sample
