Phil Tomsett ~ The Sound of Someone Leaving

The Sound of Someone Leaving sums up our universal loss in the time of quarantine.  While the album was written to convey the bittersweet mingling of sadness, anger and resolve that surface in the wake of a crashed relationship, we’re

Emmanuel Witzthum ~ The Book of Dusts

Gideon Wolf ~ Replicas

Dalot & Sound Awakener ~ Little Things

When opening a package from Fluid Audio, the first thing one notices is the scent.  We imagine the label filled with various florals, from dried blossoms to aromatic extracts.  This time around, certain copies of the CD are floral too;
