LEILA ABDUL-RAUF - To Release Her Third Solo Album Next Week, Title Track Available For Streaming

Bay Area (USA) based multi-instrumentalist Leila Abdul-Rauf will unveil her third solo album, Diminution, next week, on 13th April and physical release on 11th May, on CD through Malignant Records and on LP through Cloister Recordings and Black Horizons.
The follow-up to her highly-acclaimed 2015-released Insomnia album, Diminution sees Leila Abdul-Rauf widely respected for her work in Vastum, Ionophore, Cardinal Wyrm, Hammers Of Misfortune, Fyrhtu and many other acts - taking a more stripped-down approach to her uniquely haunting and shadowy soundscapes. While retaining a firm grasp on the feeling of urban desolation and early morning solitude, Diminution's tracks are generally longer than previous works and feel more spacious and open, where sparse melodies and gentle textural flow meet ethereal choral vocals, distant trumpet, delicate guitar, and luminous, yet melancholy drones and warm tonal drift.
Diminution is another spellbinding work from Leila Abdul-Rauf for those seeking solace in quiet and introspective music residing just on edge of consciousness. All songs on Diminution were self-composed, performed, and produced, after which the tracks were mastered by Myles Boisen at Headless Buddha Mastering Lab, and the album completed with striking artwork by Matthew Jaffe and layout by Kristoffer Oustad and James Livingston.
