Free Friday: REW<< - “departeures”

REW<< is the new solo project from Ryan Weber who is also one half of folk-pop duo Eric & Magill.  His debut album, departures was recorded last year in various hotel rooms and train compartments during his travels to Kenya, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. 
The result is a ten-song album of well-travelled experimental folk-leaning dream-pop laced with pretty piano and delicate strings like the rollicking and theatrical “Dr. Matatu”, and features some beautiful, imagination-sparking ambiance and samples as heard on the sparkling, “Oh Wounded Butterfly”.  Other standouts include the cinematic “Forgery” with its plodding piano and gorgeous multi-tracked vocal melodies and the churning strings and laid-back acoustic guitar strumming of “In Waves”.         
Ryan is offering the album as a free download via his Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages.
