♫♪  High aura’d & Josh Mason - “Silver”

In an interview with Ohio-based John Kolodij, who records as High aura’d, he said of his recording process, “I often try, when working on a piece to envision myself, somewhere else: in a desert, at the edge of an ocean, nighttime in Sonoma, crossing a footbridge in Miami, wherever feels evocative, and then trying to score that moment.” Scroll a little further down the page and you’ll feel like the sounds and images that unfold in the video for “Silver” were crafted simultaneously, along a walk through the woods, crouching along a stream, watching nothing and everything.

In a new collaborative project with Florida drone/noise kingpin Josh Mason, the duo explore, as they put it so eloquently, “static electricity and gorgeous distortion” on their debut LP, Lower Yr Voice, which is out June 28 via Whited Sepulchre. Peep the beautiful video below, which features equally ear-splitting feedback and soothing ambient tones. Premium, *limited* silver LPs are available to pre-order now.
