Boomkat Product Review:
Quiet Time Tapes début Bas Relief on ’QTT8’, following lovely editions by Huerco S and Phil Struck with a new addition of breezy ambient dream pop full of swaying harmonies, wind-picked strings and post rock swells, with detours into clipped beats...
"Bas Relief is the Montreal-based project of David Mitchell from emo act Gulfer and Will Osiecki, featuring other voices of the Canadian indie music scene such as Valeda and Fog Lake. This project brings their emo sensibilities and songwriting to an electronic sound palette, combining with influences of bass music, IDM and ambient.
This tape unfolds like an album, interweaving structured songs with short interludes and bringing guitar, piano, synths, and rhythmic static together with complex, mathy rhythms. David and Will are joined with the voices of Valeda and Naomi Soares for a set of melancholic songs."
