Home Diaries 026: Carter

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.

For our next Home Diaries release, we are joined by Bristol, UK's Neil Carter who records under his surname, Carter. We've worked with him before, with a free 15 minute EP on Audio Gourmet, called The Summer Before The Summer and he has many self-released works made available through his Bandcamp page too. He also works alongside James Armstrong (Slow Clinic) as the A Home For Ghosts project, with their most recent album being released digitally via Rusted Tone a few weeks back.

Neil's Home Diaries album consists of three mid-length tracks, which were restful spaces for him to reacquaint himself with his musical equipment, which had been in storage for some time. He has recently become a father and at the point of lockdown, his daughter was just 3 months old. This album has become a deeply personal journal, in which he has documented this special time with his young family, during strange circumstances. The moments of each movement evolve, with generative patterns offering child-like looping melodies which occasionally flourish into echoing synth swells.
