  • William Basinski + Lawrence English's album Selva Oscura is out in October on Temporary Residence. The two well-established ambient artists have been in regular contact for a half-decade, regularly meeting at events in Zagreb, Los Angeles, Hobart and more, says the label, and the idea for Selva Oscura emerged from these chance encounters of lives "lived in transit." The two-track LP was recorded in Brisbane and LA simultaneously, "created through a process of iteration and rearrangement that inverted the micro and macro characteristics of the raw sonic materials," according to the press release. It will come in a limited-to-1000 opaque light-grey vinyl edition. Listen to a clip of the title track.
