Ruben van den Belt At first I was disappointed in hearing the yes beautiful but a little over-used sound of Durand's tape style. Then this records slowly turns in something special and this collaboration between Deupree and Durand proves to bring forth magic.

s.loya Such a gorgeous collection of subtle, reflective sonic gems, and a beautiful collaborative effort. The tracks meander peacefully but not without purpose, and light up and glow like stars on a clear night. As always with 12k releases, the artwork can set the tone so eloquently. Take some time out to familiarize yourself with this gently mood-elevating recording. Favorite track: Heid.

This Valley Of Old Mountains quietly creates the folklore of an imaginary land. From a hemisphere apart, Taylor Deupree and Federico Durand share simple sounds with complex stories. Their music balances an edge between translucency and exploration, focusing on obscurity, repetition and a shared fascination of the mountains between them.
