Primitive Motion - Portrait Of An Atmosphere [A Guide To Saints 032 Promo]

Put out on the vinyl circuit via A Guide To Saints on March 17th, 2k23 as the labels 032 is "Portrait Of An Atmosphere", the latest album effort by the duo Primitive Motion comprised of Sandra Selig and Leighton Craig which have been active on the scene under this shared moniker since 2011. With four tracks subsequently named "Portrait I - IV" and the follow up that is "Trenches Of Time" spanning a combined total duration of roughly 37 minutes the two Brisbane-based artists start from an angle of tender and touching minimalist Folk(tronica) improvisations, progress into mythical, ancient and flute-focused melodies of a well enchanting character as well as into uncanny Jazz territories before wandering the valleys of CutUp and Plunderphonics only to discover deeply maritime tonalities and touching, Modern Classical-informed piano etudes to finally end up on a, still somewhat maritime, yet chiming, DarkAmbient tip for a closing. Quite a trip, this.
