After releasing his

sophomore album,

In Distance,

We're Losing,

last August,


ambient composer

Alaskan Tapes

kick started 2018

with a string

of split singles.

With four

under his belt

(eight songs total),

as well as

a 10:00 EP,

he has already

provided plenty

for this calendar year

and it's only

halfway over.


Rather than

sit back,

Alaskan Tapes

has progressed

even further with

his newest LP,

You Were Always

an Island.

At ten songs,

the neoclassical release

is a meditative journey.

The full-length

is a piano-driven

dreamscape that takes

to the outdoors,

where melancholic isolation

sways with elements

of relaxed seclusion.

Press play

and dream

a little easier,

drift a little lighter,

and soak every

moment of the day.
