    "Beautifully composed, brilliantly minimal ambient dreamscapes" - SF Weekly

    "Employing elements of dub, drone, modular pulsations and a cinematic vibe that suggests a narrative arc through the tape, Paris allows his machines to inform his decisions as they run playfully through emotional landscapes of human and synthetic connection. Recommended!" - aQuarius Records, SF

    #1 at KALX, September 2016 Berkeley!

    Jacktone Records is pleased to announce our 14th release: the full-length follow-up from San Francisco producer, Lavender, titled “Horizons Beneath the Surface.” The album picks up where his dark ambient debut, “Mystique Youth” (named one of the top 15 Bay Area albums of 2015) left off, but moves beyond and into impressive territory that further showcases his skill with analog machines and single-take composition.

    Each piece on “Horizons Beneath the Surface” is a chapter or vignette, recorded and arranged to progress through a larger narrative based on themes of discovery and uncovering the unknown. This complements Lavender’s approach to composition as raw, live and immediate, favoring one-and-done, exploratory studio takes as his synths and modulars drone and sputter. With the complex spontaneity of early Pink Floyd and the uncanny atmospherics of John Carpenter, Lavender wields these untamable machines to wrest from them deep emotion.

    Special packaging designed by Abay Zhumagulov: "I interpreted Horizons Beneath the Surface as a call to investigate connections between skin and flesh, as well as our response to skin’s exteriority reconfigured and glimpses of messy dermic structures underneath."

    “Horizons Beneath the Surface” will be available digitally and on cassette May 9, 2016 and will be accompanied by a 2x month US/Canada tour.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Horizons Beneath the Surface via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    “Mystique Youth's magic lies in its immediate beauty; it is an eminently rewarding listen, full of delicate moments and heartbreakingly beautiful melodies.” - SF Weekly
