Sepalcure Folding Time on 2LP + Download
Hotflush Recordings is delighted to announce the arrival of a second full length from Sepalcure, the American duo made up of Travis "Machinedrum" Stewart and Praveen "Braille" Sharma. Arriving four and a half years since their acclaimed debut, the eleven-track album Folding Time is a singular and tender statement that lands in May 2016.
This special coming together of distinctive musical minds produced a much-loved, self-titled debut LP in 2011, plus six EPs between 2010 and 2013, all of which suggested a penchant for broken beats and bright melodics. Both have since furthered their accomplished solo careers - Braille released his debut solo album Mute Swan, while Machinedrum's experimental exploration of Vapor City landed on Ninja Tune - that have kept them busy in the studio as well as on the road.
As such, and owing to their insistence that any production work had to be done in person "since that results in a certain sound and experience you just can't recreate remotely," the new record took some time to come together. With plenty of well paced peaks and troughs along the way, as well as a underlying sense of humor and a very real human warmth, this is an album that works on both head and heel in equal measure.
