Home Diaires 009: Fossil Hunting Collective - Aperture

Home Diaries is an invitation to artists and musicians to create an album or EP to document their personal experience during the lockdown or social distancing conditions that are upon us, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The series reflects a range of sounds, styles and ideas, as each artist portrays their own reflections uniquely. Each release is digital only for now, as we hope to raise what we can to help keep our label ticking over at this time. The releases feature a recurring polaroid image of a small lonely house, with a coloured filter chosen by the artist for each respective release. We interview each artist and this is included as a bonus PDF with the download. You can also check out the Home Diaries series on Spotify if you prefer, which will be available to stream in due course.

We stick on the North American continent, as the series heads to Guelph, Canada where we're joined by Fossil Hunting Collective, a project from former Epigram member Jamie Jones. Jones also forms part of the Aural Tethers cassette label alongside Steven de Taeye and visual artist Richelle Forsey. This formed a home for his recent album The Fear Of Landing On Water and we're pleased to welcome him to our Home Diaries catalog, with this follow-up.

Aperture is a 44 minute album dealing with the artist's experience of lockdown, which he shared with his family. It began following surgery, so recovery and finding a way back to making music played a big part in this record. There is a sense that time stands on end, through guitar drones, slow and subtle rhythms as well as both indoor and outdoor field recordings. Recovery from the operation forced a gradual approach to this album but thankfully, the extra time at home has allowed Jones to build in a remarkable level of detail throughout. The nuances in each daily routine is captured and set to a range of techniques which stretch far and away beyond flares of sleepy drone. This one should retain your interest from start to finish and sounds just as good with the volume dial set to loud, as it does when turned down.
