Sounds From The Ground are London's Nick Woolfson and Elliot Morgan Jones.
Their debut album, 'Kin' came out on Waveform in 1996. The duo's second Waveform album, 'Terra Firma, ' released in 2000, helped secure Sftg as a satisfying and respected UK musical force.
Billboard magazine called it 'consistently engaging' and like all the Sftg titles, it continues to be enthusiastically received. In 2004, Nick and Elliot returned to their roots with their third Waveform title, 'Luminal.' A spacious and sometimes gritty release with contributions from pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, Bjork contributor Tanya Tagaq Gillis, dub maestro Dillinger and other noteworthy guests.
CDBaby described Luminal as 'less lounge and more fat and dirty.' In 2006, Sftg took things to new heights with their fourth Waveform release 'High Rising'- more fresh sounding and widely acclaimed ambient, dub, trip hop and chilled back electronic musical styles.
Now, Waveform is proud to present their fifth title in the growing Waveform catalog, Brightwhitelight - a reflective and mesmerizing future classic and yet another shimmering effort from the UK's multi-talented duo, Sounds From the Ground.
