“Ryan Weber, one half of Eric & Magill (who we featured here and chatted to here), has put together an album under the moniker REW«. As the artwork suggests, the record has a dreamy, tropical sound that is chillled, reflective and really rather lovely.
When you hear the story of the recording process, the tropical sound isn’t surprising. Amazingly, Departeures was recorded in hotel rooms and train compartments across Kenya, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia, all within a few months in 2013. If the wet/snowy weather is getting to you, put Departeures on your headphones and remember that it’s always summer somewhere in the world.”
