The Moodgadget boss has an ambient LP called Loyal in the pipeline for Ghostly International.
Brooklyn-based artist Jakub Alexander, AKA Heathered Pearls, will release his first album, Loyal, this December on Ghostly International.
Until now Alexander has mostly made his mark as the co-founder of Moodgadget, the left-field electronic label he runs with Adam Hunt. He's also been a DJ for years, having spent his early days playing parties around Ann Arbor with the likes of Matthew Dear and Ryan Elliott. Loyal is recording debut, and shows his avant-garde side in full effect: the record is nine tracks of gently melodic ambience. "I wanted to find a world that was built on repetition, erosion and melody because making these songs was about recreating soothing environments," he says. Alexander also describes the album as a tribute to his aunt and his mother (pictured on the cover), who first introduced him to ambient music ten years ago. Loyal will be available on vinyl and as a digital download.
