  • Kranky will release Loscil's next LP on November 17th. Sea Island is Vancouver ambient artist Scott Morgan's first LP for Kranky since 2012's Sketches From New Brighton, and it follows a split EP with Fieldhead on Gizeh Records. Comprising a mixture of tried-and-tested live tracks and others written in the studio, the album reportedly "represents a range of compositional approaches" from deeply-layered textures to more improvisational methods, including work with acoustic instruments such as the piano, vibraphone and violin played by a cast of local musicians, as well as Seattle pianist Kelly Wyse and vocalist Ashley Pitre. Like much of Morgan's work, Sea Island is named for a place in Vancouver. In this case, it's the island that houses the city's international airport. You can stream opener "Ahull" below.
