  • Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Time Released Sound takes listeners into deep space this time with a classic ambient drone album from Italian artist, The Star Pillow, entitled “Above”. The Star Pillow is Massa Carrara based musician Paolo Monti, and this new guitar centric spatial excursion from him is a real beauty…encapsulating all that is evocative and appropriately soundtrack based about this genre. From the moments before the rocket lifts off…through it’s five track, star filled and weightless voyage…”Above” takes you on a soothing, slow-motion flotation sensory trip into the atmospheres of your mind. Re-entry comes all to soon this time around…
    As always this release comes in two versions. We have gone even more over the top than usual on the limited edition version which comes in a run of only 55 copies. Each hubbed, factory pressed disc comes housed in a vintage Kodak film can, each one in it’s original box, with an expiration date of 1969…the same year as the first moon landing! Each can is collaged inside and out with original NASA photos from the same year as well. Inside each can is a space drama diorama of sorts…embedded in polyurethane is a hand burnt and distressed astronaut figure, blown out of his capsule and floating weightlessly away through a field of actual meteorite chunks, melted bits of his space craft and jagged shards of metal and other man made debris. Each stamped box then comes wrapped up snugly in a folded and tied antique NASA photograph w/ hand printed numbered insert on the back.
