Words from moteer::

the latest addition to moteer's worldwide micro family comes in the shape of a 
collaborative venture from american artists tokyo bloodworm and brael. 
hailing from a handful of locations (new haven, ann arbor, arizona...) their
 work of collective love gives rise to the 13th moteer release, living language.
 if we're absolutely honest we never did get around to asking just how the two 
collectives hooked up, we like to think their eyes met across a crowded room 
and they bonded over a few pints and a shared love of microbeats, post rock
 beauty and warped lo-fi bedroom experiments.
 their joint venture certainly ticked all the boxes for the moteer records crew. 
the album living language is a product of tapes, cds and files sent, remixed,
resent and remixed between the two artists over the course of a year. the 
result is a delicately woven mix of sigur ros, talk talk, northern picture 
library and the remote viewer, all shimmering beauty one minute and
 sparse instrumentation the next.


"pared down percussion and the floating, effortless placement of a variety of instruments, building a whole that is uncluttered and un-fussy" - NORMAN RECORDS

"Brael / Tokyo Bloodworm have provided Moteer with the most sumptuous and fragile 40 minutes in their catalogue to date - and another debut we absolutely implore you to discover." - BOOMKAT

"After hearing quite a few albums attempt this still and just miss the mark for one reason or another, it's great to see two groups come together and just nail a sound that's so fresh, inspiring, and intricate without an ounce of pretension." - THE MUSIC LOBBY

"Listening to this splendid forty-minute collection, one would never think it was created by two groups collaborating for the first time when it sounds so much like the latest release by an established unit." - TEXTURA
