From Felte, the label founded by Ghostly label manager Jeff Owens, comes Au.Ra.

Of their debut album, Felte writes:

Sydney's Au.Ra, a duo composed of Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles, are set to release their debut full length on Los Angeles label, felte. Jane's Lament, a work which carefully envelops the listener in dreamy hues of sound, will be available on March 3rd of next year.

Made over the course of two years, the LP was birthed from improvised jams the pair play over droning guitars and looped drum beats. Tracks like “Sun,” and “Pyramid” emerge slowly out of interplays between simple melodies and layered, reverbed instrumentation.

Au.Ra's “emotive soundscapes” perfectly encase their non-traditional pop songwriting, like on highlight “Morning,” where shimmering guitar riffs transport you to a serene, meditative realm. Their repetitive lyrics belie this easy transcendence, sometimes even verging on incantation. These songs evoke a languid drive along a bending highway in autumn, the scenery and light shifting ever so slowly out the windows. As the sun sets earlier, this is an album to savor with the dying light.
