The Feedback Sutras further showcases the introspective guitar and synth sound-world of PJ Dorsey. The album was initially conceived across the winter of 2019, and envelops the listener in an eerie yet inviting audio snowdrift, slowly unravelling alongside the changing of the seasons into a Baltimore spring.

Tarotplane has honed a sound that manages to invoke the atmospherics of early krautrock and kosmiche, an era which he has studied and draws inspiration from, but with new technologies allowing for shadowy, cinematic drones and reveling in seemingly endless, oscillating harmonics and gliding alien synthetics, leading to musical daydreaming for curious minds, and a perfect marriage of the past and the future.

Tarotplane’s endeavour to reclaim those feelings has developed into a talent published by labels such as Aguirre (Belgium) and Lullabies for Insomniacs (NL). This time working with Baltimore imprint VG+, there is an added element of location specificity, a tangible feeling of a record grounded in "home" yet simultaneously yearning for the stars and the cosmos – a record between two islands. Complimented by original artwork by Fenna Fiction (Knekelhuis/Idle Press), the collage style jacket similarly indicates a time and space in limbo. Fittingly, Tarotplane will return later in 2020 to Scottish label 12th Isle with Horizontology.
