Windswept vistas, field recordings, atmospheres and destroyed love songs featuring Ulla on Saxophone. Newly remastered by Rashad Becker for this vinyl edition, ‘Everything Is Already There’ is an incredible feat a sprawling, hour-long, 12 track album recorded in the space of a week in 2020 and now easily one of the most inspiring records we’ve heard during this now year-long pandemic-haze. It’s an intimate fever-dream made real, a summoning of rich and complex spirits that reminds us of Giuseppe Ielasi & Nicola Ratti’s Bellows, Dean Blunt x Hype Williams, Ry Cooder’s Paris Texas, Ulla (who plays saxophone on two tracks under the Foamy alias), Grouper, Laurel Halo - a tapestry of suggestive, humid mood music for our time.

Beloved for her tapes and LPs with everyone from sferic to The Trilogy Tapes and Motion Ward, as well as her role running, Perila’s productions and curatorial work have been central to the emergence of a new ambient rhizome in Berlin in recent years. The hushed but fractious patchwork of 12 cuts she deploys on ‘Everything Is Already There’, however, speaks to the breadth and sensuous subtleties of her style, embracing opiated shoegaze, queasy concréte, and blushing ambient soul in a waking-daydream of a session that revels in the pleasures of locating and nourishing the inner life.

Arriving not long since Perila’s action in Critical Amnesia’s ‘ambient supergroup’ with her pals, Exael, Huerco S., Ol, VTGNike, and uon, it contains some of the most detailed and textured work in her small but precious catalogue. She emerges like a ragged spirit from the viscous tronics of ‘Time Swamp’, and shapeshifts from urgent street-corner poetry in ‘Pocket Full Of Nothing’ to take in damaged ambient blues recalling Loren Connors on ‘Riot In A Cornfield’, with her descriptive sensitivities in lushest, illusive effect on the likes of ‘On A Roof’ and the gauzy aerial drift of ‘Reality Scan’
