[Streaming]: Caught In The Wake Forever – “Wreaths”
A cura di: Nicola Orlandino
Vi abbiamo presentato in più occasioni il progetto Caught in the Wake Forever, moniker dietro il quale si cela Fraser McGowan. A pochi mesi dallo split con The Sly and Unseen, ritorna con un nuovo album intitolato The Places Where I Worship You che uscirà il 23 Marzo via Dronarivm. “Wreaths” è il primo singolo estratto che porta alla luce le strutture ambient movimentate, dall’attitudine inquieta.
Ecco cosa ha dichiarato a proposito dell’album:
‘The inspiration for this record came about while I was on holiday in The Isle Of Arran, Scotland last October. It’s a beautifully detached & quiet Scottish Island. I had spent the week relaxing, collecting field recordings & walking around with my family. During my time there I felt an intense calm that I often don’t, if ever feel. I felt a better person in this environment. I felt a better partner & most importantly, a better father. I began to feel like my old self again, being away from the general pace of modern life.
When I arrived home I spent the next 6 months trying to create an aural document of my experience. In order to remind myself (when I lose sight of it) that it is possible for me to be this way.
The six tracks here all consist of environmental recordings taken on the island, along with manipulations of an old 78rpm record bought in a charity shop at the ferry port upon leaving for home. For me this is a deeply personal instrumental record, marking not just a time & place but a certain way of life. It’s a way of life I hope to return to on a more permanent basis in the near future’
