In the Treeeees You are standing in front of the entrance to a golden-yellow museum room. Clouds slowly float across the room from left to right, driven by a lazy, undulating breeze. There hangs a frame on the opposite wall. In the frame is a pale blue sky. Favorite track: Four Films (Films Four).

Pavel Kohout Pretty good album bringing even more nostalgic moments and feelings of dusty furniture. Sounds of previous records making me long for more. 7/10 Favorite track: Four Films (Films Four).

Nathan Duin A record that was worth the extended wait. A continuation of the signature sound while managing to move that sound forward. My enthusiasm is unequivocal, right down to the excellent artwork. Favorite track: Four Films (Films Four).

"...Chamber drone caught in perpetually Lynchian state of romantic, dream-fog rapture." - Spin

Willamette is the project of Joseph Yonker and brothers Davin and Kevin Chong. The melancholic precision and restrain that has distinguished Willamette among other postclassical artists has been refined on the group’s third release, Diminished Composition. The preeminent ambient label Infraction Records released Willamette's gorgeous debut LP Echo Park in 2011, accompanied by some of the most beautiful packaging for a record Scissor Tail has ever seen. A score for the film All the Lines Flow Out by Charles Lim Yi Yong, Willamette’s stunning second album Always in Postscript saw release in 10” vinyl format the following year on Own Records.
