Vancouver-based musician Ian William Craig is gearing up for the release of a new album called Thresholder, the follow up to his (much beloved by us) 2016 album Centres. It's out November 2nd on 130701/FatCat, and seems set to be another mysteriously moving collection, as he explains:

"This was the lens through which the tracks were assembled: a great boundlessness of space, the sound of the big bang, the spookiness of the quantum world, vacillations of different kinds of conflicting time. I started by making a 20-minute piece that was just stitching together the sound of the decks and the equipment as they went about their business, almost like one was wandering through the different parts of a spacecraft. I then used this piece to coax together the rest of the tracks, envisioning the whole thing as a single 40-minute space which would become the soundtrack of being held in place by a great unknowable force while still being able to meander through the chaos and beauty of that expanded instant."

His summation of the tracks sounds unreal and unbearably beautiful, and that is borne out in the stunning new track that he has released from the collection 'And Therefore The Moonlight'. A spine-tingling track of subtle layers, giving way to the most delicate voice we may have heard yet from Craig, the track is its own wormhole of nostalgia, complex emotions and rebirth. Listen below.
