Gary Bromley :: Outside

➲ Gary Bromley “Outside” ★ Label: Assembly Field ★ Released 24 January 2016 ★

Assembly Field is very pleased to release an EP of improvised dub tracks by Gary Bromley (Dif Juz).

‘I tried to keep as close to improv as much as I could with recording and mixing all tracks done in one take. Over the years I believe that improv is the purest form of music and creation close to the oneness of the universe, any mistakes or error makes the music human. The simplicity of this music is a mantra I bring forth from my inner self to the universe’ – Gary Bromley.

Written & produced by Gary Bromley • Mastered by Ryan Palmer • Cover photo by Phil Edwards.

Shelf Nunny :: Wishful Thinking EP

Shelf NunnyWishful Thinking” ★ Label: Hush Hush Records ★ Released 22 January 2016 ★

Shelf Nunny is the alias of current Seattle-based electronic musician Christian Gunning.

Wishful Thinking‘ marks his debut for Hush Hush, the Seattle-based label specializing in cinematic, wistful, emotional electronic music. A heavy melancholy persists over the EP’s four tracks, the sonic result of the dissolution of a wedding engagement that ultimately inspired the release’s emotional tone. While there’s a sad undercurrent that runs throughout the set, each track contains a moment of bright optimism, whether it’s a burst of double-time dancefloor-baiting rhythms or a particularly cheery melody that arises to the forefront.

Perfect for contemplative headphone listening sessions, as the soundtrack to scenic late-night drives, or unpredictable intimate romantic encounters, Shelf Nunny’s biggest statement to date announces the arrival of a new talent into the fertile Pacific Northwest music scene.
