For sale at Normans Records now – Hessien ”Home is where the Ghost is” here’s what they had to say about it….
‘Home Is Where The Ghost Is’ is the debut full length record from collaborators Tim Martin and Charles Sage, known collectively as Hessien. They are creators of a super restrained form of ambient music that merges subtle melodies with waves of breezy drones which makes for particularly relaxed listening. Guitars play a prominent role on ‘Home is Where…’ providing much of the melodic front whilst layers of synths and tones back it up. On first listen it reminds me of the loose ambient moments that precede a Tortoise track kicking in. This brings me to the conclusion that Hessien dabble in a sort of ambient post-rock/jazz type sound. It’s dynamic and playful in much the same way as the Chicago strain of post-rock/jazz and it also has that conversational feel you’d expect from artists playing off each other in real time. I can’t tell if these tracks are improvised or carefully structured, in parts it feels like they probably do both. Incredibly relaxing stuff that will more than likely appeal to the Norman massive, so get in… There’s only 100 hard copies available and we have 30 so catch ‘em while you can.
