howardwatson Just fantastic. Finally, an artist producing perfect music. It's great how you keep yourself non commercial but a shame how the majority of people are drawn in to so called popular music by forced media and advertising. These people will likely never hear the music you produce. I have been looking for new music for a while as there are only a certain amount of times I can listen to the National and Bon Iver. Keep up this super work. 'They ran' from your latest release is epic. Favorite track: Two Finds Two.

Caleb Bratcher Mixing those ethereal, soaring notes with rhythmic tapping beats was a great choice and really takes ambient music in a direction I don't often get to hear Favorite track: I Know You Love to Fall.

about

'Maps is the third LP from multi-instrumentalist Jerome Alexander.

Following on from the success of Folding Leaves, Jerome has created something that encapsulates the folksy ambience of previous releases whilst adding an electronic dimension. Building layer upon layer, songs evolve with a fragile intensity. Vocal melodies are draped over string and guitar arrangements and end up soaring over them, at the same time lending a hook instantly recognisable as Message To Bears and blending harmoniously with the arrangement.

The overall result of Maps is something that is both startling and familiar. You are drawn in, given a map if you will, and invited on a musical journey that nods to Message to Bears' past but also leads to the future.'
