about

There’s a body of water in the woods near Carrboro. Dappled light on the trail leads you to it. Crunch of leaves underfoot. A river feeds the swimming hole where people plunge, naked and alive. On a chair you sit reminiscing about the future. After a dip, you lay on a big smooth rock - let the sun bake you dry. Then you walk further into the woods.

Like coming upon some keyboardists situated at the mouth of a cave, the entreaties on this record are calming but enigmatic, tinged with melancholy and reflection. Recurring motifs are given room to growβ€”there’s much space, and the progressions percolate, an auditory mapping of emotional crevices. Sentimentalism given a rougher edge. It lures you in; an orb appears, bright and buzzing. It motions for you to continue. As you do, a fragrance floats through the cave and fills your psyche, like a thousand roses hidden in the dark.

On πΎπ‘’π‘¦π‘π‘œπ‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘‘ 𝑆𝑒𝑖𝑑𝑒 π‘‰π‘œπ‘™. 𝐼, MARV imbues analog subtractive and FM synthesis with a distinct physicality. Dub studio techniques and rigorously hand-played performances create an 'environmental' keyboard masterpiece strongly connected to the lineage of 1970s-80s private press ambient and electronic recordings-- but elegantly modern sound design and production methods center the album in the present day. A timeless quality pervades πΎπ‘’π‘¦π‘π‘œπ‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘‘ 𝑆𝑒𝑖𝑑𝑒 π‘‰π‘œπ‘™. 𝐼, allowing for easy repeats, marinating the subconscious ache of loss with a dreamily resolute hope.
