Martha Skye Murphy & Maxwell Sterling: Distance On Ground

What starts out sounding like an ethereal float in the clouds ends up being an unexpectedly dark, distorted trip through some unexplored corners of your mind. It’s basically some sort of psychological drama in the form of two drone compositions around 10 minutes each. “93.3 km” is especially gripping, with a psychedelic swirl beginning and more suspenseful melodies, as well as some ear-catching edits and effects. The artists explain that this came out of periods where Martha was in a wordless trance for hours, and it truly seems to follow a logic that doesn’t correspond with verbal language.
