Ryan Evans HTX There are moments here that remind me of instrumental Beastie Boys. Favorite track: i was standing when i played this.

Pete Sasqwax With its driving double bass, relentlessly rhythm taps and soaring sinewave synth, "the wind" picks out precisely why this is a contender for the year's best: unity through diversity.

Albums consisting of short tracks can seem like ensemble pieces with memorable cameos but lacking coherence; not so here. The tracks flow beautifully, lasting precisely as long as is necessary to make their point before giving way to progress the journey onwards.

A masterful work from a master of the craft. Favorite track: the wind.

about

"You are that same person?"
"I am the same person"
"Are you going to do that again?"
"I'm going to do that for the first time. I haven't gotten there yet."

Seemingly simple, yet more complicated than intended, "Moments" is the result of a broken version of myself. The intro sets the tone. I am the same person, yet I haven't gotten there yet. This record is perhaps the most "me" record I have ever done, but is also me trying things for the first time. Life took a toll on me this past year and I went through some heavy personal loss. My usual routines fell apart and connections were harder to make. instead of the familiar motivations, I found myself getting lost in a different way. This record is a series of escapes. While it works as a whole, it is more a collection of individual moments. The ding clears your ear as you move on to the next moment. It's hopeless and hopeful. Broken and fixed.

The "exhale" series is something I started as a challenge to myself. Each record being a different challenge.They also serve as a snapshot of where I was at that time. exhale02 was primarily recorded between June 2020 and May 2021.
