Some Truths

Achterhaven 148

Open Hand Real Flames

Released: 10th August 2018 | 4 track electronic album

Some Truths aka Ralph Cumbers, aka Bass Clef, breaks a four year hiatus with a new record for Open Hand Real Flames. The project started in 2011 with a run of long sold-out cassette releases for MAGIC + DREAMS, followed by LPs for Mordant Music and We Can Elude Control in 2014.

This album was originally recorded in 2010 during a residency at Worm Studios Rotterdam, whose address at the time gives the album it's name, and which has many rare and wonderful synthesizers, some of which originally came from the legendary Steim Studio based in Amsterdam. It took a long time and many previous scrapped versions to get this album right, false starts and dead ends, but it has been worth the wait and an important project for me to get right. Eventually settling on four longer tracks from the many available, I zoned in on the hypnotic and lush sections and let them play out. It's a trip.

"without a wasted moment... above all, is the hallmark of Cumbers' recent hot streak: the more out-there he gets, the more confident he seems in his surroundings"
Andrew Ryce, Resident Advisor
