Lay My Bones Beneath the Valley Oak by AMBERSMOKE is one of most important shoegaze releases of 2017. Only limited to 50 cassettes, this tape is a must-have for any fan of good music. Lay My Bones Beneath the Valley Oak is a sonic voyage, and AMBERSMOKE is band that I want the world to know about. They are creating audio art that feeds the soul and expands the mind. I haven’t heard them make something I don’t like, and on this collection of songs they have gone to places that I want to live in forever. They can be called shoegaze, but in reality they are far more than just that – they are pure sound that is a beckoning my eternal happiness. Whenever we play Lay My Bones Beneath the Valley Oak for our kids, they compulsively create art because this music takes their young minds to a place where they feel free. I guess that’s it – I, too, feel free when I listen to AMBERSMOKE. Make sure to buy a tape from Levertraan, if they have’t sold out already!
