We’ve just returned from a fantastic holiday in Italy and at the weekend, we released our latest limited edition album which we’ll be shipping these throughout the week. Floor Overhead is a project by Andrew Farwell and Uses For Pavement is his debut album after a couple of self-released works. This record sees the catalog return to our Ambient roots after a couple of more experimental/musical releases as Andrew’s Guitar drones will recall work by artists such as Tsone, Darren Harper or Field Rotation.
At time of writing, we’ve got copies still available – to find out more or grab a copy, you can click the link below or on the image above to listen. To avoid missing out on future releases, you can join our mailing list HERE
Whitelabrecs low-run releases will be made available suddenly without official release dates, meaning they’re likely to sell out fast. The best way to keep informed is to join our mailing list which can be located through our website menu.
“Floor Overhead is Brooklyn, USA based artist Andrew Farwell who some may recognise from our recent compilation album ‘Whitelabsounds’. His previous output has seen a few self-released projects on Bandcamp and we’re now pleased to be able to present the debut album ‘Uses For Pavement’
Andrew has been playing guitar since the age of 12 and eventually migrated to making electronic and ambient music on computers some years later. His current approach to sound uses guitar recordings deconstructed and processed with inspiration drawn from industry heavyweights such as Steve Reich, Kevin Drumm, William Basinski and Fennesz.
Uses For Pavement is the product of quiet, happy accidents from guitar recordings that have been gently brushed over with some production to create a collage focused on spacing and permanence.
The album is an attempt to refuse the temptation to alter accident-prone inputs and superimpose the ‘shoulds’ of creation. Like thoughts, inputs are inherently unchangeable while our reaction to those inputs is negotiable. The result of this album is a heavy but structure-less space that serves as a shelter for otherwise lost ideas.”
