Properly engulfing double LP lofi / drone set from Swedish multi-discipline artist Pär Boström aka Teahouse Radio, originally dribbled out in a CDr edition of 100 copies via his own Hypnagogia Press but now beautifully presented by one of Europe’s most consistent and truely independent labels Vrystaete.  Tracing the arc of seasonal changes and emotional ups and down from 2004 to 2016, ‘Her Quiet Garden’ translates the artist’s personal feelings through aching slow-motion drones, warbling tape loops and delicate acoustic instrumentation in a slow, patient and considered manner that’s both brooding yet contemplative.  Similar to other incredible releases on the label (Brannten Schnüre, Brunnen, Circle Bros ++), the ghosts of Europe’s past linger in the omni-present crackle - childhood nostalgia emerges out-of-tune music box melodies whilst thoughts, feelings and memories are given the space they need to properly unfold.  Moments of darkness and submersion are perfectly offset with the lighter, dreaming-in-the-afternoon piano pieces, offering a glimpse into Boström’s own moments of light and dark.  Very special, deeply personal music.. plus really inspiring to see a contemporary label pushing music that requires extraordinary patience and time to properly appreciate..
