Mønic - Trawler Tapes 1
Simon Shreeve returns to his Mønic guise for a mini-LP of bleak, ambient soundscapes that gently and hauntingly sail from track to track, as if staring out across the vast ocean of the South Coast of England — the base of which is not too far from Shreeve’s own studio. Channeling memories of a recently departed friend, TCW 1915 – 2007 — to whom the sea was a central part of life — through an ambience reminiscent of Lustmord or Aphex Twin, ‘Trawler Tapes’ is a quiet and contemplative journey, and although the beats are nowhere to be seen, unsettling atmospherics of earlier Mønic releases pervade perhaps more than ever before.
Made on the South Coast of England.
Mixed & Mastered at DNS Essex.
Special thanks to Karl O’Connor.
