Once again, TRS offers a beautiful recording with extraordinary packaging! This sounds very much like a walk in a garden, exploring all the plants and the interaction of their arrangements. At around 27:00 I'm spinning on my feet with arms outstretched, half-blinded by the glare of the midday sun shining through the tops of tall trees all around me. Wonderful!

Coming in mid September is an absolutely lovely, pastorally infused, first album from Enofa (Ross Baker), entitled, “Arboretum”. Ross had released a collaborative album with us a few years back under the name, Middlemarch. His partner on that “Wolf Hall” release, Dimitris Avramidis, also contributes to this new effort.
This time around, nature, and the inspiration derived from walking among the trees in the park and Arboretum near his home, plays a large part in the overall tone of this one long beautiful track. Like the Arboreta, which are regularly crafted to contain a range of contrasting shapes and colours, that gives them a very unique look and atmosphere, this wondrous soundscape of sorts, incorporating field recordings, moody guitars and synth, and electronic treatments perfectly reflects the calming and mysterious feel of the long and languid glorious English days of the moment. Wind chimes…the crackle of leaves underfoot….the light, swirling wind in the treetops…the sun breaking through the clouds…put this album on and you will find yourself strolling there as well!
TRS078 will come in two very limited, physical versions. The first, deluxe handmade version comes in an edition of just 50 copies. Each of these comes in the form of a collaged, stamped and hand worked vintage art deco, tri-fold photo folder, w/original photograph. Within and without each are collaged, vintage arboreal prints, a dried leaf, and other arboreal ephemera. Each folder is extensively hand artified, and comes hung with a tag made from an antique tobacco card. Each comes with an attached, stamped black envelope containing a factory pressed CD.
There is also a hand made standard version of Arboretum in an edition of 50 copies. These come in hand stamped and altered, black digipaks with factory pressed discs. Each with a dried leaf, and an obi strip made from vintage arboreal ephemera.

both versions/formats of this album are immersive and incredible. there is much material out there floating somewhere within a field of spatial drone/tape filtered ambient tone, yet this record just stands on top. it is grounding. mk700
If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
