Warm Enough (2020)

WARM ENOUGH is a double EP, featuring the previously released I HATE WINTER, BUT I LOVE A GOOD SNOW EP on one side and a new EP, LONG THAW, on the other. Both sides were created during a particularly stressful winter that turned into a hard spring. Ambient vibes with a bite.

Originally released by Mystic Timbre on cassette and digital. 

Mastering / Design by Anthony Pandolfino
Artwork by Étienne Léopold Trouvelot (1827-1895)
Released August 3, 2020.


Finding its origins in a long, trying winter soundtracked by Kali Malone, Tyresta, Stars of the Lid, and Windy & Carl, SELVEDGE’s third Mystic Timbre release, WARM ENOUGH, sees Kansas-based artist Chance Dibben shedding the harsh, jagged edges of predecessor Hunger Stones and the deconstructed beats of progenitor Mutiny in favor of open, suffuse structures and anfractuous ambient textures. Seamlessly weaving melancholic drones and kosmische synthesizer journeys, the two sides each unfurl methodically in progressions mirroring the measured, steady thawing of winter stasis. Warmth comes slowly and embryonically, but always eventually. 

“Though the experience of SELVEDGE’s latest excursion is a markedly different style than the chaotic, energetic releases that have come before, the artist wastes none of the focus and concentration displayed previously. Instead the skills that went into creating panicked and frantic experiences now feed into a work that moves from warm, glowing ambience to otherworldly trips into abnormal and intimidating environments.” — listencorp

“This composition holds strength in its absolute singularity. Mesmerizing melodies with heavy gravity. Enough to pull the mind in new directions, away from responsibilities and commotion. Maybe to that cabin surrounded by snow or possibly to a place we periodically encounter in dreams. The title WARM ENOUGH almost reads like a question, but after listening, this is truly a statement.” — lost in a sea of sound
