Label: Kenoma Tapes
I’ve been following Tim Gray for four-five-ish years now, primarily with his Ethernet project. However, every now and then, he’ll release material under his own name. If you’re not familiar with the man, he’s released for Kranky, Lifelike Family, Tamarack Music and more. His music, however scintillating and synthetic it may be, gives further life to his home in the Pacific Northwest. As you listen to the droning wavesÂ wash over, you can practically envision yourself in one of the elaborate forests that part of the country has to offer (to be geographically inclusive, I’ll include British Columbia as well). Tim Gray’s music is never rushed, and you can tell he takes his time to build his fortresses – his homages to nature. It’s better to let Sandstone speak for itself, though. As another selling point the man has good taste, too – I’d like to point out that he has Delsin and Kompakt Records stickers on his laptop, featured in his Bandcamp profile page at press time. Listen toÂ Sandstone below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Mountain ranges rise and fall, continents change location,
the poles of the planet shift, ice caps come and go,
oceans appear and disappear, rivers, valleys and canyons change.
In all cases, the matter is the same.
It is always the same sand.
