Label: Distant Bloom
Brad Deschamps lives and works in Toronto, Ontario. In addition to curating the excellent Polar Seas Recordings, he is a prolific recording artist, creating glacial post-rock in the duo North Atlantic Drift and offering drifting, dreamy compositions as anthéne. Amid a current deluge of ambient music, Brad's work stands out for its keen emotional acuity and microscopic attention to detail.
On "Protection", anthéne crafts elegant melodies and sets them adrift in a fog of gauzy tones, underlaid with crackling textures. These heartfelt and thoughtful soundscapes reveal new facets with every listen.
