Boomkat Product Review:
"Joseph Lawrence Quimby Jr returns to Tombed Visions under his own name, creating two long form, site specific works. Culling found sounds during his travels in Latvia whilst touring with experimental dancer Iona Kewney, Quimby has created a richly evocative narrative from a varied sonic palette, meshing field recordings, elegiac guitar phrases and pipe organ in his detailed story telling. Taking a left step from Hivver’s bloated sound world, Riga describes it’s tones and melodies with careful consideration, revealing the minutiae of his experiments in a panoramic scope. What sounds like Rhodes, slide and arpeggiate into miasmic organs, shimmering uncontrollably under the weight of the beauty. The hustle of the urbane erupts under gaseous plumes of melancholy and hopeful redemption, smothering the field recordings with cinematic drama that is as life affirming as it is awe inducing. And by orchestrating these two pieces to unfold in the perfectly desired durations, the listeners ears are sure to propel the narrative long after the silence descends, their inner ear continuing to create the sounds populated in Riga. This is a record that shows a maturity of vision, learned intuition and masterful control of sound architecture and a worthy dedication to the authors father."
