Winter Sessions EP

Février is the name of the ambient work of Connor Etges from Boulder, Colorado, and back in March he released five really great wintry tracks in a mini-EP called “Winter Sessions EP.” It’s no longer snowy in the majority of the country, but give these songs a listen and take yourself back into the great, white, mind-freeing expanse of winter.

 

The first track, “Slight Mint,” is full of really interesting sounds including some windy sounds of snow-covered mountains. It’s an instrumental track with lots of great fades in and out, and it might be my favorite on the album.

“Breathe In Through The Bones” is another great one. This one spends some more time on those great swells and shimmering high frequency tones. It’s really a mood-setter, and I can clearly imagine myself sitting on top of a mountain in the Rockies with this track playing on an almost frozen iPod in my pocket. The glitches in the mid-range sounds break the song up perfectly, and everything flows flawlessly.

“Winter Sessions” closes the album up with a somewhat catchy track, complete with a persistent kick drum sound and repetitive guitar riffs. This is a good close to a solid EP.

If you live in or near Boulder, find this guy and give him some encouragement. If you don’t, then be sure to stream this songs on Bandcamp for free or download them at the price of your choice. What a deal! Be on the look out for Février, and remember these songs next winter!
