New Borghi | Teager album ‘Shades of Bending Light’ out now

The new Borghi | Teager album is out now. We first released it on our recent East Coast tour and are now making it available to the public. From the official press release:

Shades of Bending Light is Matt Borghi & Michael Teager’s second studio recording and the follow-up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed Convocation. Recorded in one take without overdubs, Shades… shows the synthesized guitar and saxophone duo venturing deeper into their “jambient” style which brings together improvised ambient soundscapes from musical ideas created on the spot. Building upon the momentum and trajectory of Convocation and Awaken…, this album features more involved melodic and rhythmic interplay between Borghi & Teager. Fans of Tangerine Dream’s Phaedra, Vangellis’s Blade Runner soundtrack, Jeff Beck’s Blow by Blow, and Tortoise will immediately recognize these influences on Shades of Bending Light.

Purchase digitally via iTunes, Amazon, and eMusic, or physically via Kunaki or at live performances.


Sean Madigan Hoen’s ‘Old Slow Sad Ones’ is now available

Author and musician Sean Madigan Hoen‘s Old Slow Sad Ones 2002-2006 is now available. I’m honored that he asked me to contribute on a couple songs for this collection, as I not only consider him a good friend but also greatly respect his music and writing. This new collection is a remixed and remastered collection of songs from his catalog that was originally released either under his own name or Leaving Rouge. For Sean’s own perspective and discussion of this collection, read this.

Sean’s book, which serves as a catalyst of sorts for this collection, is a moving read, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I wrote about it some on the blog, and there are also myriad reviews here.

Old Slow Sad Ones is available via digital and hard copies from Bandcamp and digitally from CD Baby.
