The Absent Coast

Release Date: October 5, 2010

En is the duo of San Francisco based multi-instrumentalists Maxwell August Croy and James Devane, and "The Absent Coast" is their debut collection of recordings. The pair utilize a wide range of instrumentation - koto, guitar, vocals, rhodes, melodica, and piano, among other devices - which is processed and refined into rich walls of reverberant bliss. With its hazy atmospherics, microtonal drones and plaintive tones, the album evokes the type of unplaceable nostalgia that accompanies the imaginary landscapes of distant memory. A diverse and carefully considered document, "The Absent Coast" is all soaring peaks, shadowed valleys and expansive plains. Edition of 300 LP's.
