Deterioration comes in a handmade sleeve and is limited to 100 copies…
An interrogation of the recording process in all its guises lies at the heart of David Newlyn’s new album Deterioration.
From micro cassettes, to phones, to cameras David, who is based in Durham, England, took to the outdoors while in Bruges, Belgium to capture the impact the environment and his choice of recording device would have on the sounds he produced.
The result is an extremely delicate and brooding album, full of texture and hiss as well as fleeting moments of melodic beauty.
Mastered by Wil Bolton the final mix is aptly a blend of tracks as captured on tape and digitally.
Newlyn will be a familiar name to many ambient music enthusiasts, with a host of releases to his name, having put material with Hibernate, Time Released Sound and Cotton Goods to name just a few.

Hibernate Recordings kick off a new collaboration series with an ep from Isnaj Dui & Karina ESP. The goal for the series is to get two different artists on our roster to put their heads together to have some fun and do what they love best.
Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004.
