album artwork for Irrational Overcast by K. Leimer

Another installment from Kerry Leimer, released in 2019. Presented are beautiful, calming sounds that can turn an edge and towards the pensive. With the tracks spanning three to seven minutes, each is gifted with a propulsion to paint a landscape at a glance, or perhaps encapsulate a long narrative in a condensed space. Sparse sampling and swelling strings, exquisite renderings of winter landscapes lost. There is hurt at the heart of these tracks, a pervasive underlying anxiety. Delicate keys and electronics finding their way through dusk. “Weather on the Fen” is an early favorite, but they’re all equally worthy.
