Ambient music on vinyl makes so much sense to me. ¬†Ambient albums are something to be experienced as a whole, and listening to records forces you to do exactly that…no skipping around, just listening from front to back.
CFCF blends a lot of different styles into the music. ¬†Downtempo, house, r&b…and now, they’re getting comparisons to the early minimalist pioneers like Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Eno. ¬†In a genre that is often pinned as homogenous and repetitive, CFCF’s versatility is very refreshing. ¬†Listen to one of the tracks below while you meticulously plan your busy weekend of floating in the pool and watching clouds drift by.
No pressing number, but I’d guess around 500.
Montreal's CFCF continues to add to his impressive and dynamic catalogue with the release of a new EP Music For Objects on July 9th via Paper Bag Records. The EP acts as a companion piece to his recently released EP Exercises by presenting a lighter side of our relationship with our surroundings.
"The theme 'Music for Objects' came to me kind of suddenly as I was watching this documentary by Wim Wenders about the fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto called 'Notebook on Cities and Clothes'," says Michael Silver. "In particular there was a piece of music by the film's composer, Laurent Petitgand, that struck me with how bizarre it was and that it was essentially a song that was trying to convey something inexpressible about his clothing. It inspired me to look at the everyday objects on my desk and all about my apartment and outside on the street and see that there was something kind of inexpressible about them that I wanted to convey through music."
