MARKUS FLOATS
THIRD ALBUM

“Meticulously composed and utterly absorbing. I unexpectedly started crying. Such is the power of this patient, abstract record. The textures Floats explores might feel jarring or unsettling at first, but as different elements and layers commingle carefully, they transform into some sort of transcendent, almost spiritual sound-world. It might crack open something necessary in you too.”

More praise for Third Album by Markus Floats:


“Euphoric & exultant organ chords alongside complimentary strings…chirpy, padding tones bristle with an infectious joy…digital sparks and fizzes tumble and spread like time-lapsed footage of the undergrowth burgeoning with life. This is an album that focuses the mind, cleanses thoughts and provides space for something greater, something higher to step in.”
Echoes and Dust

“Conveys a sense of determination and urgency while maintaining a meditative quality. The densely layered compositions decidedly hold one’s gaze. The message is simple — pay close attention to the ever-changing moment.”
Exclaim!

“Incredibly crafted melodies throughout…Markus Floats has built elegant drones around pockets of space that allow the songs, and listener, to breathe.”
Clash

Third Album is an assured bulletin from a musician with a clear aesthetic and a knowledge that the point of any work is to make the statement, enjoy it, then declare, ‘what’s next?’ That kind of roving appetite for creation makes Markus Floats a composer to watch.”
PopMatters

 
 

T. GOWDY
THERAPY WITH COLOUR

“This is a beautiful record, relishing the curves and tactile joys of its materials as a priority. The sounds are a delight to hold in the head; buoyant and vividly three dimensional, suspended within the echoes of modest and unassuming spaces, ornamented in synthesizer harmonies that cover the record’s surface like lichens. Elegance is the key, and Therapy With Colour manages to guide me toward richer states of consciousness without seeming to try.”

More praise for Therapy With Colour by T. Gowdy:


“Bristles with effervescent energy. Metronomic and quasi-Motorik rhythms throb throughout the five tracks as synth lines intertwine and deviate away from one another like brain waves coming in and out of focus. A blissful work which aims to soothe rather than smother, invigorate rather than infiltrate.”
Beats Per Minute

“The record has a very strong visual element despite its abstract ambient nature. The title track is like listening to light refracted through water or smoke, while ‘Depse’ has a strobe-like mantra. Aural therapy this definitely is.”
Electronic Sound

“Listening to this record feels like getting your brain massaged…’Depse’ feels like an ethereal shimmer, tickling the back of your head…’Up CTRL’ swoops you into a factory of sound, tapping with sewing machine precision and undulating upon the winding belts of the synth. T. Gowdy is a master of his craft.”
