Nude With Lyre
Blood
Out December 9th, 2016 Listen on Spotify
Augusta, Georgia producer Tristan McNeil recently described his music to The Fader as "dirty south drone." Ambient sound design inspired by time spent working bad food service jobs in a bleak hometown: "monotony and the crude surfaces of things... pores of skin, grease in food, crackle of bad speakers." Initially his debut Blood was intended to soundtrack a short film. When that project halted unexpectedly, he continued on for two years, pushing the compositions further while looking more inward. The resulting album now mirrors his own experiences sifting through the distortion—dirt, exhaust, humidity—to find the sublime. Coverage on music blogs Official website
