Spacebomb House Band, Library Music: “For the Sun and the Waters”

by | Oct 12, 2018 | MUSIC

Spacebomb, the independent Richmond record label which has published great acts like the Sleepwalkers, Andy Jenkins, Natalie Prass, and Darren Jessee, will release the third volume in their Library Music series on October 19. Made by Spacebomb House Band and produced by Pinson Chanselle, the Library Music series highlights the record label’s own rhythm section while offering musicians from around the city — like saxophonist JC Kuhl, and vocalist Angelica Garcia — a chance to perform in-session.

Part archive, part studio session, according to Spacebomb, Library Music is “an anthology of new recordings from the world of Spacebomb, a growing archive of instrumentals, interstitial music, and spiritual sound effects collected in Richmond, Va.”

The first track on Volume III, “Pinky,” has already been released. A blend of instrumentation, “Pinky” creates a soundscape unique to time and space — which chains the listener to an abstract resonance that is all-at-once atonal, but composed; a journey into the musician’s world where all things are possible.

Library Music Volume III is available for pre-order now.
