miles cooper seaton Phases In Exile (LP, £17.25)
Miles Cooper Seaton (formerly of Akron/Family) presents ‘Phases In Exile’. For over a decade Miles Cooper Seaton’s work has defied genre and discipline, spanning immersive ambient installations, intimate sets in sacred spaces and festival stages from Los Angeles to Tokyo - as a solo artist, with his own band Akron/Family and as a member of Michael Gira’s Angels of Light. Their common thread is the raw emotional charge that infuses every performance with incendiary energy, leaving listeners hyper-sensitised to their own feelings and bodies, to each other and to the world around them. “This is music that I imagine many people listening to, on the train, eyes closed, trying to imagine they’re alone. In the car, in the morning, as dawn breaks; late at night, windows rolled down, wind rushing in. It’s music for transient moments, liminal spaces, music for moving while sitting still. It’s lonesome music. But it is not about running away or being defeated, although I had to do those things to get here.” Phases In Exile is Miles Cooper Seaton’s new record, and his love letter to music and community. It is released on Seaton’s own Ascension Hall Recordings. Tracks: Out Here / Pacts with Beasts / I Am That / It Just Does / Little Prince / Persona / Division / Nothing Lasts / Death and the Compass / Homes by the Sea. Vinyl album is limited to 1000 copies.
