Today we’re listening to Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, an ambient/drone composer from San Francisco. The multi-instrumentalist makes profound music that loops and loops, inspiring deep thought. Conversations with Myself, our favorite, features shimmering guitars that act like synth pads, constructing a beautiful and radiant atmosphere. Tracing Back the Radiance populates this atmosphere with strings, actual synths, and percussion. Songs of Forgiveness is more of an instrumental shoegaze album, where Cantu-Ledesma sounds like he took My Bloody Valentine or Washed Out samples and turned them into 10+ minute tracks. No vocals.
Enjoy your Thursday.
