sahuarofest So far is my favorite album of 2017, it's the classic floating points mix of jazz and post rock, but weith an added feel of space rock and classical music. Cant wait to see it live.

Edward Breathtaking and beautiful. A sonic wonder. Almost like Radiality, Vacuum Boogie, and Montparnasse picked up Elaenia on the way, jumped onto a spaceship and ended up on a desert planet to jam. The elements of nature add a welcome texture to the music, as does the guitar. What a band. And what a film directed by Anna Diaz Ortuño. Can't wait to hear what Sam cooks up next in this Reflections series. A visionary, composer, and brilliant bandleader. This is nothing short of a masterpiece.

about

The project started simply because we were on tour with the band, had just finished FYF fest in LA, and had a week before picking up the rest of the tour in phoenix. on the way we stopped for a week near Joshua Tree National Park. the idea was to go somewhere fairly remote and setup to rehearse. it was peak summer, so we setup outside and would be playing throughout the day and night. (see super 8 footage). Whilst we were out playing and exploring the area around us - the sound reflecting from the rocks, the sound of the wind between them, complete stillness at night and packs of roaming coyotes in the distance, It became apparent that we could use this as its own unique recording environment.
Anna in our crew creates the projections for our live show, but is predominantly a film maker. We made a few calls to friends in LA and borrowed some film/sound gear and recorded some of the new music that came out of the rehearsals.
Through the process of making this record, we decided to start a series of musical & video explorations in interesting locations, where the music is a function of its surroundings. This first experiment only marks the beginning in this idea, and am currently seeking new interesting acoustic environments to explore. - Sam Shepherd (Floating Points)
