This will be the Los Angeles artist’s third full-length album of ambient works, and the follow-up to his 2018 LP, In The Fields Of Nothing, on Kompakt records. The release came out of “dark times” that started close to two years ago with the enforced lockdown caused by the pandemic. As a response, Gibson secluded himself away in an old cabin in Idyllwild, California, eventually birthing eight original tracks. Each one started with a single sound idea and a title, out of which few a “coherent story,” we’re told, and eventually the album.
In support of the LP, which lands tomorrow, Gibson has offered up the title-track on the B side, “The Groundskeeper” as an XLR8R download, available to XLR8R+ subscribers below. The video from the track is also available to view
