Huerco S. Shares A Gossamer 30-Minute Ambient Track

New York-via-Kansas producer Huerco S. shared an ethereal new 30-minute ambient work yesterday via new NYC label Quiet Time. Made up of a little more than a glacial procession of gossamer chords allowed to ring out at their unhurried pace, we can certainly recommend it for mediating workday over-caffeination.

The label has uploaded the untitled track to SoundCloud to stream for a limited time, but the release is only available to purchase as a cassette. The price tag is $13, but it gets you a zine designed by the artist himself as well as two copies of the release: “one for you, one for a friend,” says the label.

This marks the fourth of Quiet Time’s first batch of releases, and is referred to in the catalogue as QTT4; Aquarian, Money, and Baby produced the other three, which you can also hear on SoundCloud.

Huerco S. has been generous with his ambient compositions in 2016; he shared the luminous LP For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) in June, and it’s one of our favorite releases of the year so far.

According to Quiet Time’s Bandcamp page, QTT4 will ship on or around October 24.

Scott Hardware’s 'Mutate Repeat Infinity' Is A Dance-Pop Meditation On Capitalism And Queerness

Scott Hardware is the new synth-pop incarnation of Scott Harwood, who previously recorded as Ken Park. His new six-track EP, Mutate Repeat Infinity (out June 24 on Banko Gotiti Records), finds the artist connecting his love of both dance music and new wave pop, while subtly taking on queer political issues in his lyrics.

“This record is the summation of a years-long obsession with capitalism’s slow and frictional courtship of queerness: of the focus on marriage instead of healthcare, of erasure where remembrance is due, of an inflamed prejudice among the first let into the club,” Harwood told THUMP via email.

“Most of all I hope this album serves as a tribute to a generation of people who were left to die of a vicious plague and an indictment of their would-be heirs who choose to forget. Throughout, I imagine dance music as hallowed ground. The soundtrack and battle cry of a group of martyrs suffering for all the things I take for granted as an M4M in 2016.”
