Ambient folk musician and experimental composer from Portland, Oregon David Allred returns to Belgium-based Dauw Label with a full length record, Driving Through the Aftermath of a Storm on a Clear Day, set to be released on vinyl and all streaming services on December 10th, 2021. The underlying theme of this music is about exercising calm and learning to find it in the aftermath of all situations. These modern classical compositions are primarily centered around felt piano, strings, brass, tape, voices, synthesizers, guitars, percussion, etc. with methodical dynamic dub-inspired experimental arrangements throughout.
While primarily working and touring internationally as a solo artist, David has also released music under various collaborative projects such as Allred & Broderick (with Peter Broderick) and Good Enough for Grandpa (with Greg Eldridge). David has additionally appeared on works by Aidan Coughlan, Jung Body, St. Tsunami, Heather Woods Broderick, Lubomyr Melnyk, Masayoshi Fujita, Chantal Acda, Brigid Mae Power, Birger Olsen, The Beacon Sound Choir, etc.

Foam and Sand's tape loops are pretty, dammit, but instead of telling (and selling) you as such, these modular synth- and piano-made recordings shift with the many moods of meditation — they crest, recede, weep and grind. https://www.vikingschoice.org/archive/ambient-pop-finnish-black-metal-brazilian-free/ Lars Gotrich

An album of nocturnal reverie and wandering, with such fondness for its own melancholy that it borders on the sentimental. And precisely this sense of risk, of circling around something desirable but always just out of reach, is what makes the album so satisfying to get lost in. TigerTorakio
