Tim Hecker - Dropped Pianos (2011)

"This new Tim Hecker release is composed of sketch pieces recorded in 2010 in preparation for what would become the Ravedeath, 1972 album. All of the compositions are piano driven and minimal in nature. This is not a new Tim Hecker album, but rather a peek behind the curtains into the working process. That these pieces stand on their own as compelling soundworks is a testament to the fact that Tim Hecker is at the absolute top of his game at the moment."

Dig? This man makes some of the most fascinating soundscapes I've heard. Glitchy and yet wholly organic, they run the full spectrum. From intense, overwhelming noise to tranquil meditative sounds, I love it all. And so will you.
Like the description says, this is the sketches made in preparation for his most recent album. It's a little more dependent on acoustic instrumentation then his typical stuff--there's lots of piano--but y'know what? I could care less. This is still the stellar sound of Tim Hecker that I know and love.

bonus fact: I spent way to long trying to get this fucking cover the right size. Jesus.
