Featured on: The Best Ambient Music on Bandcamp: January 2021

Posted on Jan 28, 2021

“Music for Another Sky” has just been featured on Bandcamp’s January 2021 Best Ambient Music list. Many thanks to Arielle Gordon for showing appreciation of my track Home Outside.

This is a compilation from the relatively new Mailbox Records, a Bristol label founded by the ambient and drone musician James A. McDermid, along with Inês Ourives Delgado. The label has already built a modest catalogue of delicate instrumental and electronic compositions, but Music for Another Sky is arguably its most impressive release to date. Featuring new work from a broad range of international artists—including frequent Montréal-based collaborator anthéne, British Disintegration State label head Steve Hadfield, and Nairobi-based field recordings wiz KMRU—the compilation is a fundraiser for the UK domestic violence charity Refuge. The compilation takes its name from an Emily Dickinson poem about imagining a serene world. The radiating tones of Ryefield Society’s “Home Outside” and JARR’s “An Echo in Her Skin” seem to embody that serenity.
