about

I’m honored to have Jakarta’s Marcel Thee, aka Strange Mountain, return to Lillerne for a third amazing installment. After having released well over a dozen cassettes on approximately the same amount of cassette labels in the past four or five years, Thee has proven that his productivity is equally matched by the quality and beauty of each successive release. Language Sea defies typical ambient tropes by bringing the listener in close and keeping the “expansiveness” to a minimum. The melodies stream out in tape-affected, warbled streams, and there’s a distinct sense of humanity and reverence in each note and errant bit of tape fuzz. I like to imagine Thee’s music as being played in a dimly lit room—humming quietly from a small radio in the corner. In this kind of nostalgic and wonderfully intimate space, no two people would experience these songs in quite the same way. Another memorable listening experience from front to back, this is a small edition of 50 pro-dubbed Chrome/Type II cassettes with full-color, double sided artwork.
