about

An interrogation of the recording process in all its guises lies at the heart of David Newlyn’s new album Deterioration.

From micro cassettes, to phones, to cameras David, who is based in Durham, England, took to the outdoors while in Bruges, Belgium to capture the impact the environment and his choice of recording device would have on the sounds he produced.

The result is an extremely delicate and brooding album, full of texture and hiss as well as fleeting moments of melodic beauty.

Reviews:
"There’s a sense of push and pull tension here, between the constant hiss of electronics and the documented sounds, between the low-quality rumble of tinny noise in one channel and the more polished sheen in the other. Tape vs. laptop, analog vs. digital, vinyl versus mp3; war has never sounded so melodic, so gently sweet." A Closer Listen

"This is a beautiful collection of experimental sounds woven together to create an epic journey of an album." Tomatrax
