Jake Leech

St. Louis-based ambient artist Jake Leech is set to releases his latest record Brightest Night To Memory on Already Dead Tapes today.  Incorporating gentle swirls of guitar notes and a sense of unexpected progression, the latest song from that release, the empty street and dark alleyway evoking “Crosstown,” sounds as though it could be heard pouring out from some dark corner of some dead-end road. There are things hidden in that hiss and the soft cacophony of notes and gentle electronics.  And they are just waiting for you to let your guard down.  This isn’t some distortion heavy trudge through the city at night but rather a subtle examination of what can happen in those places and the resulting emotional fallout which inevitably follows.

Beats Per Minute is pleased to premiere the latest track from Jake Leech’s newest release Brightest Night To  Memory.
