Gayle Only allowed me to set ONE favourite track, but the whole album is pretty fantastic. A shout-out to Water or Concrete, Lumen Lake (these two also have accompanying videos on YouTube) and Glassworks. Favorite track: Tiny Seed, A Leaf, A Tree.
I thoroughly enjoyed the album and if you're reading this, you should definitely check this album out especially if you enjoy lofi as I would categorize this as a lofi pop album if I ever needed to put it in a genre. Favorite track: Lumen Lake.

Equally influenced by the complex pop melodies of Joni Mitchell and the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Books, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the synthetic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to pass.

On his debut full-length, Setec combines found-sound percussion with looped acoustic instruments, long-forgotten samples and cascading vocal layers to create a unique and compelling album.

Brittle As Bones is a joyous, intimate affair; brief yet fulfilling, honest and heartfelt.
