Evenings | Unreleased Collection EP

A longtime favorite at Their Bated Breath, Evenings, just released some previously-unreleased tracks at bandcamp on a pay-what-you-want basis. It’s six songs gathered under the title “Unreleased Collection EP”. The compilation is sweet. The intro is good fun, playing with a well-known line from the film “Back to the Future”: “Wait a minute. Wait a minute Doc, uh, are you telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?” Despite being some random tracks, you can tell there’s real love in this collection, because the whole mood feels like the songs were meant to be together. The collection moves in and out of glitches, spacey grooves, low record-player hiss, layered beats, elegant atmospherics, found sounds like rustling water and birds chirping, all melding into soft electronic hushes and pretty layering. It’s beautiful. You can read an archived interview Evenings (aka Nathan Broaddus) was kind enough to do with me back in 2010. You can read more posts about Evenings here.
