Charming introductory V/A compilation of droning forest strangeness and synth blissery from new San Francisco based, Watery Starve. If the opening act is bellwether of upcoming editions, Shadow Colors and Maybe Insects forbears an exciting future. Stellar mix of established acts, from Former Selves and Inez Lightfoot, to Quiet Evenings and Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, channeling a variety of nostalgic, sentimental, and spectral sounds. Transmuteo does a bit of show stealing with an incredible track of shamanistic earth rituals, which alone would justify a purchase. Grabbed my walkman and enjoyed perfect vibes on an afternoon walk through the autumn woods.
Beautiful physical product. Watercolor collage pro print by Lynn Fister, personal note included. Grab one before they get scarce direct at Watery Starve.
