Previously debuting on Bludhoney with All Small Bodies, CoastalDives brings us his sophomore record, Sleepwalk. Although a much more stripped down approach compared to previous efforts there is no compromise here when it comes to developing a fantastical aura, and tentative suspense. A harmonic balance of downtempo tranquility with the moody piano, and evolving thespian chords on the synthesizers give us a vivid glimpse of the scenes and imagery CoastalDives manifests on Sleepwalk. The tranquil tone develops into darker themes as the record progresses, and the subdued crescendos emanate a striking and expressive atmosphere. The record concludes with 'I Dream You Dream of Me', an original short film score for Jennifer Reeder premiered at MOMA in 2019. A ten minute stunner filled with glistening synth inflections and huge sweeping synth lines.
Edition of 40 cassettes
