The debut album from Chicago duo Cleared is now out in stores and available for immediate shipping via mailorder. Pre-order copies shipped a few weeks ago.
Cleared is the duo of Steven Hess (member of On w/Sylvain Chauveau, Haptic, Ural Umbo, Locrian) and Michael Vallera (recordings for Catholic Tapes, Reverb Worship). The project is meant to focus on sound selection, repetition and patience as central elements of composition. Percussion, electronics, field recordings and other experiments are arranged and supplemented with synthesis and guitar for a very deep and immersive listen.
