“The Portland-based duo loads up on ambient sounds, bendy synths, bright guitars and heaps of cavernous vocals!” - James Bannerman - Sounds Better With Reverb

I’ve always enjoyed music that you can turn on and let run all day as you lie on your back watching the ceiling fan spin. Pinscape’s Transitory Timing is that. The recently released 7-track EP showcases the creator, Matthew Flook’s addiction to shoegaze music of the early ’90s. Almost immediately you can feel the vibe from the tracks as they uplift you. Oddly enough in the description of this EP, it describes the gloomy weather of the Pacific Northwest and I find it to be quite true. The moody weather of Seattle and the atmosphere of Transitory Timing go hand in hand. - Shelby White - Wanken


“Termina!” reminds me a lot of M83 and some of Ellen Allien’s noisier work. Hopefully he’ll be doing more tracks in this electronic-shoegazing vein- this track has an amazing sound. - Switched On!


“Pinscape is a duo from Portland (USA) making electronic shoegaze, as they describe their sound. Might sound a bit abstract, so let us describe the cool dreampop track “Letropa”. It all starts of nice and easy with some sounds welling up and a repetitive ditty joining it throughout the full song. Crispy beats come in and a perfect dreamy vibe is created. The vocals make it even more interesting and give the track a big Washed Out-feel. Layers of dreamy noises making us feel like we’re on vacation. Thanks for that feeling Pinscape.” - The Rusty Blog


Typhoon - CPR/Claws Part 2 (Pinscape Remix) Pinscape is the electronic project of Matthew Flook and Andrew Wisler, two friends from Portland, Oregon. The duo just finished a outstanding remix for fellow Portland, Oregon band Typhoon. After peeping the remix below head over to Pinscape’s soundcloud for more awesome music. Enjoy - LYFSTYL Music


“One of the finest of Portland's dream pop scene.” - QRO Magazine

Bio

Pinscape is a collaboration between Matthew Flook and Andrew Wisler that has developed between various songwriting projects. Flook released Pinscape's first EP "Transitory Timing" through Nueva Forma in 2010 and supported it with a number of solo performances. After a solo show under the moniker Exit Signs at Nueva Forma's 2011 KONTRAST: Audio/Visual Electronic Music Event, Flook soon realized another member would be essential to Pinscape's live show.  Through a mutual friend Matthew met Andrew, who shared a deep appreciation of the early '90s shoegaze scene and forward-thinking space rock and electronic genres; Flook began working with Wisler right away.

After taking to the stage as a duo for numerous performances, Pinscape went to work in the studio writing new songs. By the summer of 2012 the band had already recorded and self-released a trio of new singles, Termina!, Letropa, and Seasoma. While taking a break to work on other projects and travel, the band was humbled at the response they got from listeners abroad. A young film maker in Germany had sent the group a music video he had created for their song 'Liquefaction' and soon other fan-made videos began to appear.

Back in the studio working on songs for the full length album, the band kept busy in their downtime completing song remixes for Typhoon 'CPR/Claws Part 2' (Portland, Oregon), and Lamb 'Butterfly Effect' (Manchester, UK); both were made available as free downloads. The band also did a cover of Bjork's 'Joga' and released it as a free download in honor of the original song's anniversary. In summer 2013, Pinscape was invited to perform on the opening night at The Portland Film Festival. Performing only new songs, the duo's moody textures and creative production were quickly embraced by the diverse audience of festival attendees.

Pinscape's debut album titled "Angle of Incidence" was released October 21st, 2014.
