LOVE LETTER - gentle memories - BRAND NEW CASSETTE TAPE
BRAND NEW TAPE - description from rok lok - The second release from Love Letter from Rok Lok this year is a testament to just how much the sounds that this project creates resonates in me that I feel the urge to document as much of it as I can. "Gentle Memories" offers two lengthy tracks that ebb and flow in a dense mix of monolithic waves of reverberated guitar driven crescendos, the juxtaposition of howling guitar echos and lush, ambient drones, distinct introspective guitar line melodies and found sound natural ambiance of field recordings. With over thirty minutes of pure aural bliss, Love Letter continues in the patterns found on the prior cassette release of "It Brought Us Something We Had to Know" but takes the listener to new places. I encourage you as a listener and lover of music to clear your mind of all the noise that our daily lives bring, imagine a place or a feeling you want to explore and let Love Letter's "Gentle Memories" be your guide. "Gentle Memories" serves as a "love letter" of sorts to the core of one's self and the journey that we all embark on from birth to death. Love Letter plays a form ambient, droning shoegaze/post rock that is a mix between Paper Armies, Mono and Godspeed! You Black Emperor. "Gentle Memories' is limited to an edition of 50 home dubbed (in real time) cassettes packaged in full color, numbered j-cards with hand painted/stamped labels.
