A mini electroacoustic odyssey.

Drone mesmerist Kara-Lis Coverdale returns with her first new piece of work following 2015’s mythically beautiful Sirens LP with LXV.

The effect of Grafts, which is out on April 28 and marks the next release for Boomkat Editions, has been compared to “the subtle intoxication of micro-dosing on LSD or the clarity afforded by quiet meditation,” in the press release.

For this new 22-minute LP, musical touchstones range from Arthur Russell and Art of Noise to Philip Glass and Terry Riley, Erik Satie and Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto. Coverdale’s gossamer touch becomes apparent on first listen – the Canadian composer has a fine knack for crafting music that is both intricate and impactful, drawing you into her web of sound.

This is her first solo vinyl release following 2014’s A 480. Listen to Grafts below.
