Raymond Cummings - "Northeastern" CDR
- Sound Clips
"My plan, originally, was to visit Maine and Connecticut in sequential months in fall 2021, capture a bunch of field recordings, and later emerge with a collage for each state to be released as an album. Connecticut was axed for money reasons but Maine ultimately gave me Northeastern anyway, a record about vacationing in the American northeast when the autumn trees are at or near their most psychedelic.
Herein is incidental life, baked into new ambers: laughing strangers, enthusiastic tour guides, restaurants and airports, a fountain, two young twentysomethings on a street corner staging a lonely action for reproductive rights, the world’s most mesmerizing hotel refrigerator, and more besides." - Raymond Cummings
