Loscil
Endless Falls

Taking his name from the ‘looping oscillator’ function in the Csound program, Canadian ambient artist Scott Morgan has been recording as Loscil for two decades. Endless Falls was his fifth studio album for the Kranky imprint, and recorded in part with Destroyer’s Dan Bejar, and it gets a double-LP re-issue. 

Loscil
Sketches From New Brighton

Sketches From New Brighton is yet another set of delightful pillowy electronica from the inimitable Loscil (Scott Morgan). Morgan’s blend of downtempo electronics, ambient music and dub techno has influenced artists like Edward and Nicolas Jaar, but when he’s on form there are very few other artists who can craft soundscapes as wintry or as beautiful. And on this, his sixth LP, Morgan is once again on form.

Loscil
Equivalents

For the twelfth Loscil album, inspiration has been taken from the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. This is a very wise decision, as the silvery shimmer of his cloud and sky photos meet their perfect sonic analogue in the sound of Equivalents, which drifts gorgeously along in classic Loscil / Kranky style.

Loscil
First Narrows

First Narrows was the third Loscil album to be released and, now over a decade old, it certainly deserves its first outing on wax. The album is a wonderfully polite work of gentle computer sound, processed acoustic instruments and beats that are alarmingly hypnotic, perfect for drives, late nights and subdued social happenings. Check out “Sickbay” for a great case in point, which wraps layers of soothing, wide pads over skittering rhythms and soft syncopations of smokey keys. Lush.

High Plains
Cinderland

Collaborative project between classically trained cellist Mark Bridges and Scott Morgan (probably better known as his solo moniker Loscil or as the drummer and saxophonist for Destroyer). Since working together on an endless generative music app in 2015 a future project was looming, in the form of High Plains, 9 tracks of low level neo-classical pieces blending cello, electronics and field recordings.

Loscil
Monument Builders

Drummer and saxophonist for Destroyer but If you haven’t heard any of Loscil’s 12 albums this is as good a place as any to start. Warm synthesis, subtle dubby chords meet field sampling in an ambient space-capturing setting, a sense of place and the grandeur within it. Droney, but so very musical.  

Loscil
Triple Point

Normanology 101: In the world of science, the ‘triple point’ is the moment at which a material is in flux between its vapour, liquid and solid states. The term proves to be an apt title for Loscil’s 2001 debut LP, a record in which sounds slip-slide around and textures come with soft edges. The micro-house of Jan Jelinek, Boards Of Canada-aping electronica and a dubby ambient style that prefigures Jay Glass Dubs are all to be found drifting across Triple Point. This record was the first to emerge from Loscil’s fruitful partnership with Kranky.

Loscil
Plume

Scott Morgan’s fourth Loscil album Plume took a different approach to previous efforts, using harmonic roots as a platform for live improvisation in the studio, with editing kept to a minimum. The ambient drone/electronica that Morgan deals in swells and recedes slowly throughout and proves itself adaptable to change. 

Loscil
Sea Island

A vital cog and immortal player in Vancouver's alternative music scene -- having played drums  for Dan Bejar's Destroyer while also making an endless slew of ambient works -- Scott Morgan is better known as Loscil. 'Sea Island' is a new record of sorts, collecting loose but original material Morgan has made over the last two years. Some of these pieces were composed with spare studio time, while many of them began life as live works. 'Sea Island' proves Morgan to be a master of synthesising electronic drones with an acoustic discipline -- Kranky, innit?

Loscil
Coast/Range/Arc

Coast/Range/Arc is a collection from ambient pioneer Loscil inspired by the coastal mountains of the Pacific North West. It is a typically beautiful collection of hazy beatless pieces devoid of clutter and perfect for getting your mind into a tranquil space. This new version on Kranky features new artwork and an additional track.

Loscil
Submers

Issued on vinyl for the very first time on Kranky, Submers is the second studio album by ambient artist Scott Morgan, recording under the name Loscil. All of its tracks are named after submarines, and the mood, constructed largely from samples, is one of ominous moods, clangorous rhythms and claustrophobia.
