Comment: this 3-notch outing is a fine example of how field recording sounds are treated in a way to chime like coming from an eerie street. It gravitates toward a rail station which does mean one can hear metallic ghosts and at the same time epic industrial echoes which will result in the statement this music is uncannily beautiful and ennobling. And purgative by any means. It can be considered life around us we used to encounter every day, however, being strongly magnified and thereafter amplified. Most of us can recognise the charm of Minecraft, this 50 minutes and a bit more can be considered a counterpart of it in sounds in some sense. In some sense with certain reservations because East By Rail is less artificial because this sound art issue comes directly from an interface where life and observation and production are mixed up with one another. You can perceive rough sonic figures being juxtaposed to more fine sonic dimensions. Indeed, similarly to Minecraft it is highly playful which used to resonate with the surrounding sounds. While listening to it you should be aware of the fact which sound comes from the album and which one comes through a window or wall of your apartment. One of the most outstanding releases in 2017 coming from Prague, the Czech Republic.
