about

PURCHASE - LP at Verses Records
versesrecords.bandcamp.com/album/40-hours

This record is a meditation on the standard 40 Hour week week - why it exists, why we are doing it, how it effects us... among other things. A hypnotic layering of melodics that evolve and dissipate while maintaining a steady tonal center.

The track listing reads as regular work week; Monday - Friday. The tracks reflect the ups and downs of the daily grind. Getting up, working, eating, possibly some recreation and sleeping - only to do it all over again.

This record sounds out of its time and element somewhat, and will likely appeal to listeners of Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Pam Am, Windy & Carl or other melancholic ambient drifters. (Toneshift)

Tristan Welch’s 40 Hours is an excellent album. Beautifully constructed, and so sympathetic to the average working Joe, that it can’t but be admired. (Recclective)

Though the themes in this album are socialistic, the music stands alone as a layered and structured movement of pure sound apart from any ideology. Guitar loops are constantly feeding off each other, growing into a grand climax and then fading away into the next act. (Splice Today)

0 Hours deals with the ups and downs of the daily grind and reads as a manifesto against working class struggles. While openly addressing a very tangible malaise, Welch manages to produce delicate tunes—one for each day of the work week—capturing shifting moods with minimal, repetitive guitars. Adding uplifting saxophone harmonies, musician Ron Oshima shines on “Tuesday” and “Friday,” (Washington City Paper)

Notes ting like the second hand on the clock. They fill chords like FNL, in some dreamy way, but at the same time it feels like we are stuck in time or at least moving in slow motion. (Raised By Cassettes)
