Justa Lint Discovered the track thru ambient blog & then fell for the whole album. It's a bit pricey, but the whole album is rather extraordinary ambient music. Highly recommend! Favorite track: Brisbane River.


This album was released on September 25 to mark World Rivers Day.

As our environment continues to change, rivers represent some of our most vulnerable eco-systems with urban runoff, over fishing, changing rain patterns and the clearing of river banks just some of the challenges to river systems worldwide.

Rivers Home sees Marcus Fischer, Field Rotation, Broken Chip, Kate Carr and Billy Gomberg, each present an ode to a different piece of water on their own three inch CD.

Each copy comes in a numbered handmade sleeve, with an insert containing a personal message from the artist introducing the EP.
The message is contained in the information section for each track on Bandcamp.

''The entire set has been mastered by 12k, and is a beautifully crafted compilation for connoisseurs and collectors alike. It’s no wonder that Flaming Pines has been featured as one of the Best New Labels of 2011 on Headphone Commute. Highly recommended!''
-- Headphone Commute (review of entire series)

''The skill with which their story’s are told is a testament both to themselves and the label’s curator. – Highly recommended.'' -- Fluid Radio

From pristine headwaters in New South Wales to Brooklyn’s stinkiest canal, this ambitious project “celebrating rivers great and small” is the brainchild of the already waterlogged Kate Carr ...produced by her burgeoning ambient label Flaming Pines. -- Cyclic Defrost

"Carr clearly has hit upon a fertile concept in the Rivers Home series—all one need do is consider the varying character of the five installments as proof of that..." --Textura


released September 25, 2011
