TCR returns with an album of quality ambient electronica that flows and engages like a series of intimate narratives.

Distilled from a proposed double album, Their Subtle Purpose is the culmination of 2 years work. Hauntingly moody, the album is suffused with subtle rhythms and melodies that wander like misplaced spirits. Flow, craftsmanship, detail, and a deeply engaging, delicate beauty that draws you in to its soundworlds and curious passageways. Sure to be enjoyed by all fans of intelligent and listenable ambient.

NOTE: This release is a personal favourite of the artist.


"TCR's stock-in-trade is this kind of rich retooling of classic e-music - deep, often pulsating tracts, punctuated by suggestive samples, treatments, and sundry peripheral micro-incursion."
Alan Lockett - igloo mag

"Kerby's talent shines brightly in ambient circles, and I have no doubt that if he keeps releasing discs like this, that it won't be long before his name is included with the best of the genre.
rik - Ping Things

"... meandering, wistful, fragile and beautiful, and the rhythms seem far more subtle than on previous efforts. Seems like a combination of Circular Ruins and the slower tracks of Lammergeyer."
Joe Rygwelski - Hypnos Forum
