M. Sage - No Same River Twice (2014)
Genre: Ambient / Field Recordings
Country: United States
M. Sage has a special knack of twisting simplistic beauty into something fragile and haunting. With No Same River Twice he continues down the vein of his other releases from this year, uniting distant guitar pluckings with drones and field recordings. The music retains a fairly basic formula (excluding the track 'Stumbling Blocks, where he gets a bit eccentric on a drum kit), however Sage manages to manipulate these sounds to create a distinctive somber atmosphere which I haven't found on many other releases from the big '14. Perfect for a rainy Sunday morning or a 2 AM identity crisis.
