Caalamus Oriente Two of my earliest SoundCloud friends appear on this album... OhSoWhy from Stockholm & Monotronaut from Canada/NY/PDX.

As if that weren't enough... sink\sink has done a MASTERFUL job of wrangling other talent & accomplished no small feat of songsmithery in the lead/curatorial roll!!! Give it a listen :]

I went out of my way to buy this on BC, even though I own the tape... which came with a download... just so I could support it in my collection!

Well worth it√

"The poetry of improvisation begins with an observation and then the touch while the beauty of experimentation comes from the strong desire to dare. sink/sink shows a beautiful sound of both improvisation and experimentation. With gentle melodies that stand behind a soothing voice. An element of an unknown mystery lingers throughout every song. The introductory notes to “A Lone Cloudburst” speak words of darkness and lay beneath the rumbles and drones of a new language. As you continue through the album's entirety, you will discover the musical idea and construction of harmony. It layers drones among strings and swells of noise within the lyrical artistry. Calm, hidden and benign, the album is a steady escalation towards peace and a brighter shade from a darker color. From New Zealand, it's sink/sink's new album - “A Lone Cloudburst.”" -Ray Jackson, Already Dead Tapes, 2013
