There is something confident and pure in this release that I love. Seemingly simple on the surface but rewarding upon closer listening. Not one to miss. (Also, this cover art is beautiful.)
Favorite track: cancel.

Winter 2017 Bundle
One copy each of both tapes released in winter 2017, Home Power by Distant Reader and bask by naps. Both tapes include bandcamp download codes.
"bask," a new work by Philadelphia's naps, plays almost like a companion piece to 2015's "one hundred percent confident" - except this time the deep submersion and murky textures give way to a newfound brightness and clarity. If "confident" was the dive down, here we find ourselves resurfacing. It's sunny out, and there's plenty of shade but fragments of light still break through, shifting and converging as you drift. They're bringing something down with them - but don't worry about what you're looking for, just let it come into focus.
