Labradford - Fixed::Context album FLAC

Alec L. Critten Labradford's final album finds them in a rather unique musical divide, straddling the lines between post-rock (or even "rock" at all) and pure ambient textures. By greatly limiting their sonic palette, these musicians are able to conjure a striking sound. This record may pass you by upon first listen, but it will draw you in, again and again.

Fixed::Context is the sixth studio album by the Virginian post-rock band Labradford, released on February 26, 2001 by Blast First and Kranky. All lyrics written by Mark Nelson; all music composed by Labradford. Adapted from the Fixed::Context liner notes.

Labradford is the eponymously titled third studio album by post-rock band Labradford, it was released on November 12, 1996 by Blast First and Kranky. Adapted from the Labradford liner notes.

My first pass through fixed::context left me completely bored. As with E Luxo So, there just didn't seem enough to the music to hold my interest. But each time I played it, fixed::context burrowed just a little deeper in my brain and I now hum the simple themes constantly, even when the record is nowhere in sight. I may have been a bit slow on the uptake initially because fixed::context is an absurdly minimal proposition. The whole record is only 37 minutes long; there are only four tracks, and each has a handful of different sounds hitting only five or six different notes

90. Because no other act really sounds like Labradford, which matches its Ennio Morricone-style melodies and analog synths with a sense of menace missing from most ambient music, it's forgivable that only subtle distinctions differentiate one recording from the next.
