What Is This Place? is a highly listenable experimental album, painted with broad strokes of tone and percolating with percussive detailed bits, plucked strings, found sound, and moody melodics that take you on a journey, an abstracted adventure in sound.
Set In Sand creates emotional and rambunctious organic electronic music, often sourcing from a variety of musical and real life sounds; saw blades and vacuum tubes, guitars as percussion, deconstructed music boxes, cello, xylophone, chopsticks on snare, a marching band, or a swarm of bees. The sounds are then loosely sculpted into a hybridization of melodic sound collage and dreamy deep-listening soundscapes. A co-release with Abandon Building.
New video for Set In Sand's "Cherish The Moments" from the What Is This Place? album, coming May 15!

"This dublab curated compilation will guide you into high states of inner focus through sound. You are invited to float this path to heightened calm, clarity, and concentration by listening to these songs crafted to enhance the meditative mindstate. "

Just a quick note: We only have 5 copies of the first pressing of the Fantastic Palace left, but I'll be out of town for a bit (starting now!) so I won't be able to ship any orders for the next 10 days or so. Hopefully we'll have the 2nd pressing in soon and Mississippi Records in Portland still has copies. Thanks!
