Sound Postcard : Overcast Sound


Here’s a Sound Postcard that’s been sitting in my mailbox bin, long overdue to be shared! It goes perfectly with the latest Headphone Commute review of Overcast Sound‘s Beneath The Grain.

It’s a recording made in our Berlin flat using geophones attached to the boiler and pipes near the windows during one of the more temperamental storms. The result is a combination of the sounds of hot water turning to steam, and the freezing rain hitting the building. It’s a nice thematic tie-in to our first full-length album, BENEATH THE GRAIN, which is a conceptual diary of our stay in Berlin and also uses numerous field recordings, but steeped in a dub techno soup.
