St. Petersburg, FL instrumental post-rock band Set and Setting are about to release their third full-length album, Reflectionless, tomorrow (January 27). But before they do, they’ve offered up a stream of the entire record via Noisey. Guitarist Shane Handal comments:
“With this album a huge part of what I was trying to accomplish while writing it was to leave my influences behind and just write whatever feels right. I tried not to listen to any new albums or any music in general while writing the record. Also, there was an attempt to be mindful to try and do different stuff rather than relying on my go-to approaches. But always in general the influences will be there—Pink Floyd, the obvious instrumental band pioneers like Godspeed and Mogwai, atmospheric black metal, and so on. The concept of this album is based on the idea that external reality is just a projection of your inner self.”
Reflectionless features Pink Floyd-inspired cover art by Samantha Muljat (Earth, Pelican) and is being self-released on January 27. Set and Setting also teamed up with AWAL (Kobalt) for the digital release, as well as Science Of Silence Records (US) and Dunk!records (EU) for exclusive color vinyl options in addition to its regular vinyl pressing.
