Habitatual

Oakland-based musician Austin Freese (aka People’s Palms) makes his Hush Hush debut with the cinematic 10-track album 'Habitatual,' his third album under the moniker and his first official label release. A thoroughly hypnotic affair heavily influenced by the natural world, the album organically swims through a fantastic mosaic of mallet instruments, long form guitar swells, found sound, and his trusty Yamaha CS-50. Piecing together unique field recordings captured over the last three years during mundane everyday life as well as exotic international travels, and then patiently adding his own instrumental flourishes, 'Habitatual' carries a transportive sound that quietly shifts through downtempo, ambient, and New Age styles while simultaneously floating free of rigid genre confines. Shades of Steve Reich, Boards of Canada, and early Tortoise peak through his richly-detailed tapestries, creating a meditative imaginary soundtrack ideal to compliment unexpected excursions. A subtle yet consistent global influence further enhances People’s Palms’ exploratory productions, fueled by a fascination with the globalization of music and traditional international rhythms sparked through his own travels as well as the interconnectivity of our online generation. Fitting right at home on the introspective-inclined Seattle-based label Hush Hush Records, the blissful sonic world People’s Palms has created with 'Habitatual' yields a dreamy, immersive, and mesmerizing listening experience.
