After two long players released in 2014 and 2015, Inventions, the creative alliance of Matthew Cooper of Eluvium and longtime friend Mark T. Smith of Explosions In The Sky, are back with a new album. Entitled Continuous Portrait, it arrives digitally on May 29th and a cd/vinyl release will follow on July 10th through Temporary Residence.
“An album of strange hypnosis, punctuated by songs that venture quite far from the respective oeuvres of Cooper and Smith”, describes the press release, Continuous Portrait has a “sense of exploration, pleasure, and ceremonial melancholia which informs the entire album from front to back.”
Inventions are already enticing us with the gorgeous and gentle lead single ‘Outlook For The Future’. Take a listen below.
