Ruben Machtelinckx / Frederik Leroux - When The Shade Is Stretched [Aspen Edities 003]

Released about a year ago in November 2k17 via the Belgian label Aspen Edities is "When The Shade Is Stretched", the imprints first artist split release which is a collaborational effort between the creative force that is Ruben Machtelinckx and Jazz / Improvisation talent Frederik Leroux in which both of the artists provide a showcase of their solo performance abilities and individual approach towards structured, yet improvised music. Whilst Machtelinckx, responsible for the first seven tracks on the longplay piece, employs a tender, multi-layered and oftentimes repetetive approach towards warm, summerly and partly even Folk-infused variations on Indietronica, acoustic guitar and banjo play and Post-PostRock we see Frederik Leroux bringing forth more of a stripped down, slightly more vibrant and experimental attitude, providing a scintillating flow of psychedelic, dreamlike nature entering the deepest realms of our subconscious, inducing flashing, illuminated periods in our REM-sleep and beyond.
