Post-Production on Part 1 by Andrew Chalk

Description by the label:
As fans since 2014, were very excited to be releasing the debut vinyl from Danish multi-disciplinary artist jeRum. Titled when birds fly, the eyes of heaven can rest, the LP features two extended tracks of aetherial, haunting and otherworldly beauty.

The cover art is a hand-cut collage, part of an ever growing body of incredible work from this talented Dane. The artwork expresses the audio perfectly. A floating, drifting haze of light, subtly shifting, organic. This is a world to lose yourself in.

"Denmarks jeRum makes a sublime vinyl debut with the anaesthetising ambient tones of When Birds Fly, The Eyes of Heaven Can Rest for Londons Aurora B [...]

Veritably curling off the platter like opium smoke, the two sides of When Birds Fly place the listener in a gorgeous state of suspended animation akin to the blissful serenity encouraged by Kevin Drumms Imperial Distortion, but perhaps massaged with Elodies special oils, which should maybe come as little surprise as Elodies Andrew Chalk is responsible for post-production on Part I.

That first side is a real beauty, unfurling some 17 minutes of thee most languid, golden synth and choral harmonics and shivering partials with a patience and steadiness of hand thats just an absolute pleasure to undergo. Likewise, Part II is a pure dream sequence, but this time riding dense, phosphorescing waves of organ drone with a deeply blue, melancholic quality that places it in a very special category on our shelves.

Dont sleep on this one!"
- Boomkat

"[...] OJERUM ascends toward the heavens out over a sea of bliss (again, both sonically and visually), establishing a more distinct connection to the classical ambient model than ever existed in previous works - measured ebb and flow of gentle tones finding contemporary relatively sunny side up comparison to DAVID ANDREE, KYLE LANDSTRA and WILLAMETTE - i might think of this as OJERUM's moonshot, "a world to lose yourself in" indeed, exquisitely presented on neatly full color labeled clear vinyl with glorious "hand-cut collage" cover art

AURORA BOREALIS also did a cassette edition "in keeping with the artist's previous catalogue" but also in keeping with OJERUM's catalog it didn't last long - but rest assured this is as about as good as it gets for me in terms of a "proper vinyl debut" so might as well enjoy it as such, sure to be one of my absolute favorite ambient albums of the year."
