Austere - Fade
Austere - Fade Quantity in Basket: None
Code: austere02
Price: $7.99
Four long tracks of slow-motion, trance-inducing sound. Gentle, distant rumblings. Deep swells and slow simmers. Mood music for the space generation.

"...this is closer to the minimal recordings of fellow ambient musicians like James Johnson, A Produce (his non-rhythmic side) and Stephen Philips. However, Austere carves out their own niche by suffusing the music with a unique organic unforced rhythm, which is accomplished through the almost breath-like rising and falling of the drone tones and washes of sound. [...] Never harsh or cold, even at its darkest, the music on fade (as with all the music from Austere I've heard) is created by artists who understand how to infuse ambient music with deep beauty and more humanity than you would think possible for this level of minimalism."
--Bill Binkleman, Wind and Wire

"[Lid]... made me think of Roach. The swells. The bell/hornish/breathing tones. An extremely nostalgic sound for me."
--Chip Hart
