Patient Hands is a beautifully crafted ambient journey through the mind and experiences of Montreal via Saskatoon artist Alex Stooshinoff.
The album is full of lush billowing drones, combined with spacious and sentimental field recordings taken on a walk across Spain on the historic Camino de Santiago Patient Hands is gorgeous, romantic, and sad with some odd curveballs thrown in, which adds a wonderfully human element to these soundscapes. These powerful sounds provide a simultaneous sense of fleeting life and endlessness. The follow up to his debut album Stasis, Patient Hands is a step away from the singer-songwriter sensibilities buried below washy organ drones. It’s a step towards transcendence.
