Though he only began releasing music as cloudsound in 2014, Swedish resident and American expat Lee Boyd has been recording beautiful ambient guitar compositions directly to tape for years now. We’re excited to share his latest collection, asperatus, and it’s another stellar example of Boyd’s singular sound. cloudsound has all the lushness you could ever want from this kind of music, but Boyd’s loose, improvisational style feels distinctly homegrown – like a kind of cosmic blues brewed on Earth and then beamed out for the rest of the universe to enjoy. There’s just something so intoxicating about the combination of Boyd’s washed out guitar tones with the warmth of analog sound. Drink it up and drift away. Pro-dubbed and imprinted chrome cassettes, featuring designs by Caroline Teagle. Comes with a free digital download.
