Tranquility Tapes (TQ35)
edition of 100
Since dropping the Nova Scotian Arms moniker in favor of his own name, Georgia's Grant Evans (Quiet Evenings) has delved even further into the rabbit hole of tape music. As he experiments with longer magnetic spools, Evans' sounds continue to stretch even further beyond the horizon. Solos for Muted Transparent finds Evans dropping a thick cloud of abstract haze on that horizon with two magnificent, side-long pieces. Tones simmer beneath the surface, flirt with harsher textures, and gradually reveal themselves in surprising and beautiful ways. You can only begin to guess where most of the sounds originated, but new ones will continue to reveal themselves with each subsequent listen. It's always a good time to lose yourself in a mystery. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle.
