A journey into uncharted territories with Fading Tapes.

The Cartographer uses sparse percussion to propel us on our journey through cinematic soundscapes conjured from swells of effects, guitars, and vocals. There is a sense of unfolding space throughout the tracks, as we glide across deserted landscapes charting abandoned remains and artefacts as they appear through the haze. Notes echo out seemingly endlessly and blend with intonations, whistles and sounds less discernible as the minimal drum work provides a sense of motion, as if staring out of the window of a strange craft in unfamiliar terrain, as time stretches with the landscape. Cartographer would be well at home as the soundtrack of some lost sci-fi art film, accompanying slow long shots of distant zones.

Fading Tapes is the Polish duo of Krzysztof Siwkowski and Marcin Lasek, this time with Aleksandra for additional vocal textures. Based around guitar and drums they conjure minimal psychedelic soundscapes.
