Wyndham Rain Worlds come into being and fuse and collide here. The God at the source of this myth of creation is both gentle and firm, forging out of the deafening chaos rooms of vast interiors immense enough to house the yin and the yang of earthly existence: love, destruction, madness and meditation.
Yes, let there light, let there word, let there water air. Favorite track: Interiors.

Nathan Duin A great record in every regard. The tracks work on every level, as music that is memorable in a structured song way and as ethereal music that takes one's brain elsewhere. The New Mountains video is splendid as well. A lot of time and effort was clearly put into this artistic project. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Autumnal Response.

about

Spencer Williams and Ryan Gracey's 2nd full length LP as Drape on Infraction. Analog orchestras and guitar
notes that expand for minutes on end. The first two tracks on Let There Water Air are awash in a guitar and
cello haze, rising up on 'new mountains' like the morning sun cresting over the horizon. When it gets quiet,
as in with the opening of 'Interiors', it is a stark-like Cage piano piece with the sounds of the piano
repair shop these tracks were recorded in captured like bits of dust. The buzzing of a not too faraway
guitar still makes it's presence known, but it is the slooow melody of textural piano that is the centerpiece
here. Where Drape in the past has blended noise AND ambience, here the noise is weighted, perforated and the
light is allowed to filter through.

All filters aside, Let There Water Air is Drape shining brightly. Balance and restraint - the soft noise of
guitar, the melodic anchor of carefully chosen piano notes, the occasional metallic reverb and hum, even a
cacophonous (relatively) piano hammering (courtesy of Doug McDiarmid of Why?), and the entwining of guitar
strings with cello strings.

Let There Water Air is available as an LP or CD. The CD is housed in a tip-on style mini-lp sleeve with
printed inner cardstock envelope. It is an edition of 300. The LP is 180 grams of vinyl. Also housed in a
thick cardstock tip-on sleeve with polylined printed inner sleeve with and OBI strip. This too is in an
edition of 300 copies. 100 copies on clear vinyl, the other 200 copies on pure black. INFX 060 / INFX 060 LP
