Coppice Movements
Coppice Movements (1-sided LP limited to 100 copies)
Cat: ZD 004. Rel: 26 May 20
  1. Cadence (5:06)
  2. Inundation (6:12)
  3. Descend (2:20)
  4. Examination Of Conscience (6:32)
  5. Wake (2:20)
Review: Created as an addendum to the 'Carolina' album, 'Coppice Movements', and the five movements comprising the EP, isn't so much a case of exploring new territories as it is a convincing display of just how much can be done within a relatively strict conceptual framework. One of the joys of drone in forms tied to ambient electronica is the deceptive sense of depth - refrains often hang on a single central tone but float, glide and flow in a manner that creates textured soundscapes on such a huge scale images of mountain tops and big country wildernesses are rarely far from the mind's eye. Zake's latest is a case in point, offering plenty of calm but complex scores primed for the self-reflective moments in time we spend considering the beauty of our world.

  23. Gaze (Christina Giannone rework) (5:44)
Review: Remembrance follows a similar formula found on zake's previous effort, Geneva (released on Past Inside the Present, 2020). He produced eight short phonic motifs and then invited artists to collaborate, rework, and expand upon the source material resulting in a new, unique creation. The album consists of eight short vignettes by zake, six collaborative pieces, and eight completely reworked tracks. The track titles and overall theme of these works are based off the gorgeous poetic narrative "Remembrance" written Julia Frizzell.

Frizzell & Duque: A Sorrow Unrequited
Frizzell & Duque: A Sorrow Unrequited (LP + MP3 download code limited to 300 copies)
Cat: ZD 009LP. Rel: 24 Mar 21
  1. We Once Believed We Owned The Sky (8:56)
  2. Fragile Dreaming In A Fragile Mind (7:54)
  3. A Sorrow Unrequited (4:00)
  4. Closer, Always Closer (4:17)
  5. The Sparrow's Flight (5:43)
Review: It's not just a clever name. Zake and City Dawn have come up with a record that genuinely sounds like the reflective moods that so often follow great loss, realised on record. Sweeping synth-strings on 'We Once Believed We Owned The Sky' only serving to reiterate the sense of lamentation that seems to pervade every corner of this album.

Sometimes looking back on what was but will never be again is the only real way of making ourselves feel better - by connecting to intensely emotional memories we can trigger an outpouring that's truly cathartic. As if following that pattern, Frizzell & Duque: A Sorry Unrequited is a strangely uplifting experience by the time we're listening to the closing bars of 'The Sparrow's Flight', even if that's only because of the sense that others have the capacity to feel the same as we do.

Frizzell & Duque: A Sorrow Unrequited (limited CD + MP3 download code)
Cat: ZD 009CD. Rel: 24 Mar 21
  1. We Once Believed We Owned The Sky
  2. Fragile Dreaming In A Fragile Mind
  3. A Sorrow Unrequited
  4. Closer, Always Closer
  5. The Sparrow's Flight
Review: Frizzell and Duque, better known as zake and City Of Dawn, further extend their already impressive catalogue of music with the sublime 'A Sorrow Unrequited'. The joy of ambient music is its ability to provide the listener with a pathway to quiet contemplation. These two musicians take the listener on an aural journey, a musical interpretation of the beautiful poem of the same name written by Julia Frizzell. A Sorrow Unrequited showcases the beauty of the modern classical/ambient genre, and the talent of these two artists is on full display. Music that is truly timeless and enduring.

Frizzell & Duque: Orison
Frizzell & Duque: Orison (180 gram splattered vinyl LP + MP3 download code limited to 200 copies)
Cat: ZD 008. Rel: 21 Feb 22
  1. Signaling (9:23)
  2. Sacred Silence (7:57)
  3. La Foi Pour Demain (9:16)
  4. Orison (8:13)
Review: Orison is the latest aural exploration between zake & City of Dawn and a predecessor to their previous orchestral effort, 'A Sorrow Unrequited'. Orison is a prayer or plea to a deity. The archaic origins of the term stem from the Latin language simply meaning to 'speak to God'. Patient and solemn symphonic drifts that foster stillness, boundless thought, introspection, and eternal contemplation.

Pinehaven (180 gram milky & green splattered vinyl LP + download code limited to 200 copies)
Cat: ZD 017. Rel: 07 Feb 22
  1. Moments In Mind (3:58)
  2. Te Ahumairangi Hill (5:09)
  3. Pieces Of Pattern (5:47)
  4. Pinehaven (3:48)
  5. Wellington (3:16)
  6. Zelandia (12:01)
  7. Glimpse (5:17)
Review: Pioneers of slow-evolving minimal drone, zake & City of Dawn transform unadorned inputs into beautiful complexity in their latest effort, 'Pinehaven'. The drone duo is known for their carefully crafted textures, avoiding sudden shifts or abrasive sonorities. Their focus, as heard in previous efforts, offer up the steady ebb and flow of sound, cultivating a profound sense of meditative stasis and explorations of high-fidelity sound.

Tape Hymns (180 gram split coloured vinyl LP + download code limited to 200 copies)
Cat: ZD 016. Rel: 07 Feb 22
  1. Hymn No 1 (4:33)
  2. Hymn No 2 (7:19)

  4. Hymn No 4 (3:49)
  5. Hymn No 5 (9:53)
  6. Hymn No 6 (6:26)
  7. Hymn No 7 (3:42)
Review: Tape Hymns is a mesmerizing amalgam of sounds carefully crafted by frequent collaborators zake and City of Dawn. The warm hiss of analog tape as the foundational structure of these arrangements brings forth pastoral mediations with becalmed, atmospheric intent. Tape Hymns mix echoing sonic tones, slow-drifting sounds with immersive low-end frequencies.
