On March 13th, ambient/electronica composer David Vincent Reep, who creates under the pseudonym Elephant & Castle, will release his debut LP, Transitions, via Plug Research. For a starter course on Reep’s free-form sonic creations, he’s released the album track “En Memoria”, featuring guest vocals from Merrill Garbus (aka tUnE-YarDs). Waves of slow, methodical noise lull the listener in, with Garbus’ distinct vocal styling – at an all-time hazy – waiting patiently. Though Garbus’ part is separated between jolting refrains of pitchy ambiance and assorted junk sounds, her contribution shines thanks to Reep’s orchestration, and vice versa. Listen to the track below, followed by the album tracklist.
