about

Though self-trained LA multi-instrumentalist Ernest Gibson is probably best known for darker outings thanks to his debut solo LP 'Island Records' (Skrot Up) and recordings as one half of Net Shaker (Kill Shaman, Sleeping Giant Glossolalia), 'Pastoral IV' sees him experimenting with the chemistry of atmosphere, and from a particularly unfamiliar vantage: behind the keyboard. Twenty tracks of immersive thought experiment form an adaptable companion to contemplation, one that constantly remakes itself in the light of new imagery. 'Pastoral IV' is a deep but shifting enterprise and the best indication to date of Gibson's true range.

"Serene lo-fi instrumentals..." -Bandcamp Hunter

"This is quite different from Gibson’s more darkened post-punk approach heard on his Skrot Up album from last year. Pastoral IV features a collection of twenty fairly short, mostly dreamy instrumental tracks that have a decidedly, yes, pastoral, nighttime feel to them. Despite the brevity of each track, the tape still flows together quite nicely from start to finish." -Free Form Freakout
