Halftribe is the project of the Manchester composer and sound artist Ryan Bisset. One year after Backwater Revisited, he’s back with a new album. Archipelago is out now via sound of silence. According to the press release, it mixes skillfully blending together airy synths, soothing pads, hazy drones, delicate chimes, processed vocal samples, lo-fi plucked guitars, overlapping tones, looped crackles and calm field recordings.

Expertly mastered by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), Archipelago is a beautiful aural journey of blissful ambience, subtle textures, twinkling melodies and dreamy soundscapes which appeals to all fans of artists such as Fennesz, bvdub and The Green Kingdom. Listen below.
