AOTW | 22 August – 28 August: Sacred Tapestry – Shader
This week’s album-of-the-week is the futurevisions suite of Shader, released under the Sacred Tapestry moniker by Ramona Xavier (of Vektroid, Macintosh Plus, New Dreams Ltd.; etc.). Not only is this release highly notable for its establishment of yet-another subgenre through a project of Xavier, but it’s also exceptionally interesting in its multiple call-backs and self-samples of Xavier’s own works. Tracks follow a cinematic blend of field recordings, early Oneohtrix Point Never analogue keyboard progressions, and long-form ambiance. Read *Sunbleach*’s review here, and listen out the music below.
