The other night at SXSW Jheri managed to snag a copy of Alone/Secrets, Kites Sail High's double 12" EP released last year on Life's Blood. The 12" is a genuine masterpiece of ambient dub and IDM, atmospheric and brilliantly orchestrated with a massive repertoire of sounds. Meditative beats, sometimes simple and sometimes luxuriantly textured, punctuate ambient swells and the pair of EPs ultimately become chameleons. Through the juxtaposition of a variety of sampled sounds across a wide tonal range, Alone and Secrets are capable of accompanying all kinds of living - labor and rest, active and passive.
Cop the vinyl from Life's Blood for 13 of your American dollars.
