David Newlyn – Ruins
The second in a new series from Time Released Sound comes from David Newlyn, entitled “Ruins”. Like the Taskerlands release, the music on this release comes in the form of two long 20+ minute tracks. With the usual finesse that David shows on all his work, he brings us here an absolutely stunning blend of neo-classical beauty featuring laptop, keyboard, guitars, minidisc and field recordings. This is headphone music for sure…it’s delicate yet insistent flow, and depth of ambient nuance is in fine keeping with David’s previous release on Time Released Sound of last year, “Brittle”. Newlyn has such a fine touch with all that he has at hand… and he never ceases to amaze!
