Ambitious and captivating; expansive, textured and unique, this is the sound of Herd.
Since we began our record label, like the radio show and blog from which it spawned, we’ve never been just one style, one sound.
Since 2007 via several net based labels, Herd has worked on a multi-part series of ‘Tangents’ – abstract experimental electro, ambient electronica and drone soundscape material. ‘Arteater’ continues in that vein of sonic tapestry, yet is very much its own complete piece. Herd’s influence is drawn from many places, most obviously that of Future Sound of London. Impressed enough were they the duo have released material of his via their own FSOLdigital imprint.
Pushing the limits of vinyl recording length we cut close to 20 minutes a side of sound without comprising on quality. We work closely with our mastering and cutting engineers, none more so than on this release.
We could continue writing fancy, descriptive words, but as with all our releases, we let our music do the talking, and there’s a lot to hear in this one.
