The follow up to Leila Abdul-Rauf’s 2015 highly acclaimed debut Insomnia, Diminution sees the Bay Area based, multi-instrumentalist take a more stripped-down approach to her uniquely haunting and shadowy soundscapes. While retaining a firm grasp on the feeling of urban loneliness and early morning solitude, Diminution’s tracks are generally longer than previous works and feel more spacious and open, where sparse melodies and gentle textural flow meet ethereal choral vocals, distant trumpet, delicate guitar, and luminous, yet melancholy drones and warm tonal drift. Another spellbinding work from Leila for those seeking solace in quiet and introspective music residing just on edge of consciousness. In 4 panel digipak with stunning artwork by Matthew Jaffe, layout by Kristoffer Oustad."I’m struggling to think of many current acts travelling similar paths who are this tonally rich, their parts this carefully assembled..." The Quietus "one of those recordings that sinks in and wraps around you like an ethereal blanket" Tone Shit
