Inventions, the duo of Eluvium’s Matthew T. Cooper and Explosions In The Sky’s Mark T. Smith, are about to release Maze Of Woods, their second album of glassy organic ambient music, out into the world. We’ve posted the early tracks “Springwords” and “Peregrine,” as well as the Field’s remix of the latter. “Escapers,” the third album track that they’ve shared, is by far the trickiest of the three. It warps a vocal sample into something inhuman and stretches its gorgeous sounds across an erratic, off-kilter electronic beat. In the end, it’s as disquieting as the group’s other songs are enveloping. Listen below.
Maze Of Woods is out 3/17 on Temporary Residence.
