See Blue Audio Preview – 'Blue Roofs'...

'Blue Roofs' by NRV (SBA #039), two extended sonic sketches based around everyday life from the drone/ambient producer based in Sendai in Japan. A musical philosophy of soft simplicity; finding inspiration in everyday life and locations, which in turn give rise to emotional spaces.

The 20-minute title track is sublimely graceful, a slow-moving beatless river punctuated by fragments of field recordings and microscopic glitches, while the accompanying track, ‘Sombra’, is a little shorter in length, and complements and contrasts its partner with a more pastoral, optimistic feel. As ‘Blue Roofs’ immaculately captures, nothing is truly ordinary, and everything has its rightful place in the universe and beyond. Release date: 14 October 2022.
