The New Honey Shade – Mantled By Clouds
“After a short period of hiatus, we’re pleased to at last announce another release which sees the return of our popular Earthtones series. Now at Volume 3, Earthtones as a series has notched up some 74 contributions from a truly international selection of modern Ambient music artists.
Earthtones cross sections a range of the sub-styles of Ambient music, from warm shimmering tones, to lightly abrasive noise with a mix of both the acoustic and the electronic. Modern classical, chamber music, field recordings, drones, electro-acoustic, glitch and space music all fall within the loose confides of this genre and we’re embracing it all.
Earthtones began as an expression of how the internet has sort of shrunk the world into a smaller place, where connection has made it possible to communicate; often the expansive physical geography can be forgotten. Earthtones retraces this ground via artists from all four corners of the globe with each track featuring a unique image taken by the artist in and around their location.
The money raised from this third edition will be pooled back into Tessellate Recordings, as we work towards releasing another physical edition in the near future. Watch this space!” – Tesselate Recordings

Earthtones is dedicated to the memory of Tim David Brice who passed in January 2014. Many of the artists involved with the Earthtones project had worked with him; may he rest in peace.
