Afar, Farewell is Offthesky joined by experimental violinist Brendan Paxton aka Man Watching the Stars for what is put simply one of the most breathtakingly moving albums we've ever released at Rural Colours. Unlike a lot of albums in the ambient genre this one is far from the usual background music with a variety of instrumentation and the disposition to engage in a more earthly, melodic, stucture. Afar Farewell supplies five gorgeous tracks of slowly evolving melody on a soft bed of processed guitar, molten strings and Offthesky's deep and quirky signatures.
