about

An Antique of Paper & Distance combines muted, beat-oriented tracks with single-instrument pieces that straddle the lines of cinema and the living room. In contrast to past work, where Honig can cement in city life and its accompanying sounds, this release feels more scaled down to barer elements while remaining consistent with his embrace of the tactile nature of the sound sources and the beauty of things that degrade gracefully over time.

In the saturated piano of “An Unfamiliar Reminder” fragile tones are bent in and out, exhibiting their pliability through stutters and skips while gracefully turning from one phrase into another. An almost lyrical quality weaves through, using occasional repetition that is structured by its own instinctual logic.

“Wherever You Go There You Are” takes tuned kick drums, distant voices, blocky peripheral percussion, and processed melodies to balance downtempo dancefloor influences with a firm footing in still-home ambient.

On “Antique Paper” murky kick-and-clap, dub-break-esque rhythms dance around stretched, warm, looming chords, ebbing and flowing in a space of texture and thought.

Rounding out the EP, “and Sometimes It Closes” uses subtly effected cello, maneuvering through a tender orchestra of one inside modern, electronic sensibilities. Staid and introspective it concludes with an ear for the past and an opening for the recent future.

Plastic, metal, wood, and air coalesce with Rhodes, guitar, horns, and piano, pairing inviting, fuzzy chords with clunky and dirty mishaps. ... more
