Description (English):
Sound In Silence is happy to announce the addition of Test Card to its roster of artists, presenting his new album entitled Rediffusion.

Test Card is the solo project of Lee Nicholson, based in Vancouver, Canada. Nicholson was a member of Preston’s Formula One in late 1990s and Brighton’s Domestic4 in early 2000s, having released albums and EPs on many independent labels such as Kooky, Fierce Panda, Liquefaction Empire and others. Later, he moved to Vancouver and from 2012 to 2015 he released two albums and two EPs under the alias of Electrohome and an album in 2015 as one half of the folktronica duo Future Peasants.

Rediffusion is Test Card’s second full-length album, after last year’s highly acclaimed debut album Start Up Close Down on the Japanese label Symbolic Interaction. It’s a wonderful collection of ten evocative tracks with a total duration of about 45 minutes. Using layers of melodic guitars, deep bass, hypnotic synthesizers, glitchy electronics, vintage drum machine samples and odd field recordings, Test Card creates an album full of warm textures and ethereal atmospheres, blending perfectly elements of dreamy ambient, minimal post-rock and lo-fi electronica.
The finishing touch on the sound of Rediffusion was applied by the mastering of George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), adding a great depth to its nostalgic soundscapes.
A lovely release highly recommended for devotees of Labradford, 1 Mile North, The Durutti Column and Helios.
