Sebastian Krueger of Inlets just needs a little room. Growing up in a large prairie-style home in Madison, Wisconsin, he became possessed with a certain notion of infinite space. His method is compact and intimate - a solitary Shure microphone details the puff of a clarinet as closely as reverberations in the creases of his pillow - but these bedroom recordings sprawl with occluded heartfelt colors and shimmer with the accidents of expansion. Here, whole conversations bloom and senesce in quick moments between notes; single hushed voices persist and then suddenly are buttressed by myriad more. This is music that riots and rushes in the world of multi-track recording software, but which still retains a terse narrative course and an ear to beautiful detail.
Apart from Inlets, Sebastian enjoys the privilege of playing in My Brightest Diamond; supporting Shara Worden with guitars, clarinets, bells and falsetto. He contributes to her forthcoming record A Thousand Shark's Teeth.
