"On Communication, the acoustic guitar, with its folksy melodies, is the driving force behind most tracks. Ananyev invites the listener to hear even more, through the playful and inventive patterns, barely familiar progressions, melancholy textures, and most importantly, the album’s genuine soul. The latter is colored with a nod to environments, scenery, and nature, with titles such as River, Birch Trees, Lake, and Oak Tree, drawing inspiration from a more organic source." ♫♪ read:// Headphone Commute words on Max Ananyev - Composer's "Communication" out on Preserved Sound : http://hcdi.gs/Ananyev

"Like a head-cleaner for the busy mind, whenever I feel my pulse quicken due to some invisible and troubling thought, I gravitate towards this album [...] Marzuoli is able to erase time from the ever present equation of living, leaving one in the midst of their journey, alone but as one with the isness." ♫♪ read:// Headphone Commute words on Marco Marzuoli's "Senza Titolo" out on Dragon's Eye Recordings : http://hcdi.gs/Marzuoli

"Walking through forests near Krakow, Geir Jenssen had [a] revelation, his eyes opening to the years of hurt the Second World War had inflicted and the hidden, subconscious scars on the landscape they left behind, as well as the deeper and more mysterious medieval and prehistoric tales the trees withheld." ♫♪ read:// words on Biosphere's "Departed Glories" out on Smalltown Supersound : http://hcdi.gs/DepartedGlories
