The pre-order roll-out continues before Bandcamp Friday with the fabulous new artist on Somewherecold Records Departure Street. An American living in Paris, Departure Street: Every Color in the Sky is the exceptional album by guitarist Allan J. Kimmel. He plays alternative ambient and neo-folk/psychedelic music with bossa nova, Middle Eastern, & American blues underpinnings. His ability to combine world music with Americana and ambient textures makes for a unique and exceptionally beautiful set of compositions.
According to one reviewer (Record Crates United), ‘Kimmel takes his unique brand of psychedelic loner-folk, and stirs in elements of reverb-heavy ambient music, cosmic American primitivism and even some Middle Eastern folk traditions. The resulting brew is a heady yet mellow mix that glides along with a pleasant ease.’
Another new member of the Somewherecold roster, Departure Street brings a beautifully intricate take on guitar ambience and gloriously constructed solo work. His integration of world music and other styles gives the artist a unique and brilliant sound.
