Home Diaries 012: James Osland - Everything Will Be Alright Forever

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.

In this Home Diaries edition, we welcome back Devon, UK's James Osland, whose album 'Gone For A While' was released by us back in 2018. James has also released music through Rusted Tone Recordings, Shimmering Moods and Green Field Recordings and also runs his own label, Elm Records.

James has continued working throughout the pandemic due to being a key worker, but he has found the general pace of life to have slowed considerably. This has given him more time to read, relax and write music and this record is influenced by noise pollution, as unwanted noise has disappeared. The natural world now has centre stage and this became the backdrop for an album in which field recordings are the main focus. Natural sounds are accompanied with only the gentlest placement of ambient drones for a subtle but detailed listen. It is best enjoyed in a quiet setting free from noise pollution; indoors or outdoors for a three dimensional listen, where you can bring further natural sounds to this environment.
