October will see the release of Without Star or Compass, the second album from Kennebec following 2020’s Departure. Speaking about the upcoming album, composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Eric Phillips, the man behind the project, comments:
“The first primary influence for this record is that, more so than ‘Departure’, I wanted to write this record for my friends and others rather than for myself. Maybe it’s also a product of maturing, but I wanted the music to communicate more clearly to others, and be less of an exercise of some kind for myself.”
Without Star or Compass features Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring, Sudan Archives and Yazz Ahmed. Ahead of its release on October 7th through Night Times Stories, Kennebec has recently shared the spellbinding ‘The Great Divide’ feat. Yazz Ahmed. The track comes with a video accompaniment made by Kennebec and Mike Denise. Here it is.
