Indian Summer LP
Originally from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Airis’s solo recordings have remained rooted in a “four-track forever” ethos, both in composition and sound as he’s migrated East for the past decade. Dedicating himself to experimenting with available recording gear, he continued focusing on mastering analog tape machines when others had gone digital, giving his catalogue a distinct ancestral flavor unwaveringly devoted to his own sculpted sense of Americana. Upon his arrival to New York City, Airis began building a recording studio in an industrial era textile factory in Brooklyn. Indian Summer tastefully explore song layers in the variety of the warehouse’s sound rooms, giving an unusual honesty to his work and highlighting location as more player than muse. From the outset the record is overtly a man alone in his music, amongst the millions in one of the largest modern cities. Indian Summer, recorded in his Brooklyn studio, marks Airis’s first official release on Totally Gross National Product out of Minneapolis, MN.
