One year after Tines and Places Real And Imagined, Philadelphia-based ambient/drone sound artist Andrew Tasselmyer (known for his work with Hotel Neon) released new album. Surface Textures is out now via Eilean Records. It as created with field recordings captured in Japan, China, Europe, and the USA from August 2017 to May 2018.

His words about it: “The album is a soundtrack to specific, ordinary experiences that somehow became permanently lodged in my memory of those places. It is an album focused on painting a picture of unnoticed corners of the world, and a reminder that sometimes, the greatest satisfaction is found by looking past the immediate and into the peripheral textures of a place.”
