En is the duo of San Francisco based multi-instrumentalists Maxwell August Croy and James Devane, and The Absent Coast is their debut collection of recordings. The pair utilize a wide range of instrumentation - koto, guitar, vocals, rhodes, melodica, and piano, among other devices - which is processed and refined into rich walls of reverberant bliss . With its hazy atmospherics, microtonal drones and plaintive tones, the album evokes the type of unplaceable nostalgia that accompanies the imaginary landscapes of past memory. A diverse and carefully considered album, The Absent Coast is all soaring peaks, shadowed valleys and expansive plains.
