Erick Hernandez It's elegant sound with traces of Tangerine Dream, Solar Fields, Art of Noise and Télépopmusik, makes a perfect mixture of layered sounds rendering a unique atmosphere on each tune. Favorite track: Frigid Air feat µ-Ziq.

ethan h Beautiful beautiful album. I've been feeling River Pheonix the last few days. Really intense textures somehow evoke a blissful cold calmness. I don't know how else to describe it but it's one of my favourites from the album. It's so hard to pick a favourite but Infinite Sustain is just incredible. Also in Frigid Air when that synth comes in at 3 mins it gives me goosebumps. Anyway, I'm rambling. Huge love for this album. Thanks Drew Favorite track: Infinite Sustain feat Hannah Cohen.

about

This album took 2 years to make, more time then I have ever spent on anything in my life.

I've always tried to make music for clubs and outward facing experiences, but often in spite of my best efforts I end up supplying a sound that translates best on a private personal level. The communal listening experience is great, but not my favorite, never been. I have been escaping into albums on a solo mission for as long as I can remember. As a result, I've developed a familiar closeness with dealing with myself and the emotions I navigate on a daily basis.

Heaven is for Quitters is at its core, about dealing with yourself, both the good and the bad. I share this album with the hope that it can be used by others as I have; a guide, a blanket, a reassurance that the path I have chosen is the right one. It is my job to share my experience and there is a lot of work to be done here on Earth, the thought of going to Heaven too early is paralyzing. I venture to think you'll agree.

It is fitting then that I release Heaven is for Quitters on my label Blueberry Records, as it has become abundantly clear how much I love this label and what it is and can be - my future but ultimately continue to be a platform for others as well. When artists hand me their demos I see what Blueberry can be, this megaphone for peoples inner existence and a clear channel for their articulation. You know that feeling when you are so close to something you can't see the bigger picture, but when you step back you see what you have made and it is a mirror image of yourself? That.

This album is for those who’ve chosen their own path and all of its uncertainty and end up finding themselves along the way. How the roller coaster of life sounds. It is about Blueberry Records as much as it is about my daily life.
