Cool Maritime - Sharing Waves (LP)
Sean Hellfritsch (husband to Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith) returns to Leaving Records with his second outing for the label as Cool Maritime. Sharing Waves is all-expansive environments, and fully-realized worlds to explore and get lost in. A persistent sense of adventure and excitement is practically baked into the songs, many of them having been recorded in inspiring and remote outdoor locations using a nomadic studio including a "lunchbox" modular system. The narrative flair of this instrumental music comes naturally to Hellfritsch, who is also an accomplished filmmaker.
