In Softening Air (Tape)

Label: ASR Agency

Format: Tape

Genre: Electronic

Preorder: Releases April 1st 2024


Relaxer follows up the eerie, floating vistas of 2022's "Force Field: A Guide for the Perplexed" with the mercurial, poetic descent "In Softening Air.” Combining spoken word with spacious, enveloping sound design, this album spelunks into moist, mossy, fleshy crevices of the psyche. We cannot help but to meet ourselves in dreams. Sorrows & lamentations, shit talking, punk rock, apps, phlegm, studies in depth psychology, rat piss - it's all here, presented in a gentle, loving tableau, and recited as a catalog of the inevitable and the unavoidable.

"Like a river from a stream, we're here / And it's unwinding / In softening air." Dialing back the psycho club impact of “Candy” and “Licking” in favor of whalesong womb sonics and HD rain droplets, “In Softening Air” nonetheless finds overlap with those works in its exploration of carefully sculpted audio, spatialization and sexuality. Listen with an open heart at your own risk. K Wata provides an outstanding remix. This work was premiered at Dripping at Nowadays, May 2022, reworked as an audio/dance piece choreographed and performed by Æirrinn Ricks and Relaxer.
