MP3: Quiet Evenings - Transcending Spheres
Sounds like Quiet Evenings' Grant and Rachel Evans were on a pretty blissful meditative trip recording this slow-burner from their first full-length record. Gently extraterrestrial soundwaves fade in and out with a kind of abstract elegance; the super-sparse instrumentation makes it sound even more ethereal, as though it hasn't even been generated by humans. There's a certain (literally) spacey vibe to this title track from Transcending Spheres: it brings to mind the soundtrack to the classic RTS Homeworld, recorded by '70s prog rockers Yes. It's ambient, crystalline, totally beautiful. Transcending Spheres is out now in a limited run through Preservation.
