After last year's split with Even the Dew is Porous, we've been itching to share more from this excellent Brooklyn/Philadelphia duo. On Keeping to the Void, Ian Collier and Eric Brannon continue to advance their ability to create soundscapes that are paradoxically massive and intimate. Processing a heavy mix of piano, vocals, field recordings, as well as stringed and percussive instruments, each piece has an entirely distinct sound, exploding with both dark imagery and grandiose beauty. There's something distinctly cinematic about this music, which is no surprise given the members' backgrounds in film production. Still, they manage to create pieces that are in no way heavy handed nor emotionally manipulative. Instead, their audio journey through the void invites you to conjur up your own imagery to accompany the magnificent sounds. What will you see when you open your ears and close your eyes?
