The Experience of the Day

A piece by Iowa City—based the Ambiguity

There is absolutely nothing explicitly natural about “Snow on North Linn,”and yet it feels real in its own way. It has sublimated melodic material that couldn’t be mistaken for the wind, and yet it feels like a breeze passing. It has piercing moments that suggest the sun breaking through a cloud, but that couldn’t be the case since, of course, the sun doesn’t make a peep. Recorded by Charlie Broderick, who goes by the Ambiguity, it is a lush, welcoming, reflective piece that captures not the actual documentary sound of the day, but the emotional experience of the day.

    I was on N Linn St just a couple days ago in Iowa City… And I just bought the EP at Bandcamp.

      I was wondering if you knew him.
