descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Philippe Battikha of CORSE and La Part Maudite steps out for an avant-serenade on this mournful solo offering. The granular tones and careening curlicues of his trumpet drift in slow-mo flow through soundscapes of bustling street corners, Super 8 camera whirr, and less recognizable squishes. Double bass saws through "Beyond You" while "Time For New Hands" casts a pall over haunted pianos, righteous vocals samples, and the soothing ASMR of rain on a windowsill."-weirdcanada.com
