The music is refreshingly different to a lot of what is swirling into the music abyss at the moment. While an ocean of chillwave influenced scenesters are doing their best to live up to what the likes of Toro y Moi and co. have created Yawning Gulf has been working away creating a very unique musical journey of his own.

From simple guitar melodies that carry the stylings of a positive Elliott Smith through Japanese Forests to layer rich beach music that is a carried by a Pet Sounds influence. I really dig the subtle motifs that you hear left behind as the sounds fade out. A totally diverse album that feels as though it is almost autobiographical.

”A beautiful album of home-made instrumental ditties put together by Brighton producer/musician Jack Ryder. Using found sounds alongside ‘real’ instruments including piano & guitar, these are all relatively short pieces that bring to mind the heart-warming work of artists such as Tape or early Mum along with the playfulness of Hauschka. Much like the photo of a sun-kissed ranch in the middle of rolling hills & trees on the inside sleeve (taken by Ryder himself incidentally), these songs transport you somewhere well away from the hustle & bustle of the city to somewhere altogether more lovely. If you enjoy the sound experiments of any of the aforementioned, this is most definitely for you. Very highly recommended. Local” – Resident Records, Brighton.
