1st time ever on vinyl. Loscil's 4th album finally reissued.

Loscil - Sea Island
Sea Island
2LP | 2014 | US | Original (Kranky)
26,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Sea Island is Vancouver ambient artist Scott Morgan's first LP for Kranky since 2012's Sketches From New Brighton, and it follows a split EP with Fieldhead on Gizeh Records. Comprising a mixture of tried-and-tested live tracks and others written in the studio, the album reportedly "represents a range of compositional approaches" from deeply-layered textures to more improvisational methods, including work with acoustic instruments such as the piano, vibraphone and violin played by a cast of local musicians, as well as Seattle pianist Kelly Wyse and vocalist Ashley Pitre. Like much of Morgan's work, Sea Island is named for a place in Vancouver. In this case, it's the island that houses the city's international airport.
Loscil - Monument Builders
Monument Builders
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Kranky)

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Monument Builders is the new album from loscil, the ambient/electronic project of prolific composer Scott Morgan. It was primarily created on sample-based instruments in Morgan’s century old Vancouver home. Like that aged space, this music is also rough-hewn, with rickety samples of boiling kettles and resonant moving air. Recordings from a vintage micro-cassette recorder contribute distortion, rattles and textures that serve as both percussion and abstract aural color. According to Morgan, the genesis for the album may have begun as he viewed an old VHS copy of the American experimental film Koyaanisqatsi. “Something about the time-tarnished visuals and the pitch warble on Philip Glass’s epic score added a new layer of intrigue for me,” says Morgan. “Glass has always been an influence but lo-fi Glass felt like a minor revelation, as if the decay was actually enhancing the impact of the film’s message.” The investigations on Monument Builders also took inspiration from the anti-humanist writings of influential philosopher John Gray, as well as photographer Edward Burtynsky’s iconic aerial photographs of pollution and environmental destruction. “Gray’s writing, particularly his book Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals, reinforced a bleak notion I had that we humans don’t have much say in how it all turns out,” says Morgan. “With Burtynsky, I was struck by the fact that something so strikingly beautiful could be the result of large-scale waste and exploitation.” Monument Builders was composed during a period in which the life-and-death battles of close friends and family forced Morgan to examine his own feelings on mortality. In the course of that introspection, Morgan found himself buoyed by a feeling of celebration and a stubborn sense of survival—an acknowledgement of what it means to be able to breathe and create amidst the clash of love and chaos. Ultimately, Morgan hopes the music here can offer listeners solace while leaving room for exploration and surprise.
