An ethereal experience, hauntingly opaque acoustic music from Tashi Dorji can be found across Stateless, documenting the sporadic nature of living as an apparent outsider in the so-called land of the free.

Be warned, some of the compositions here will trap you in what feels like the eye of a never-ending storm. The rawness of the recordings make for an isolated feel from the outset, which isn’t to say there are no bright spots here — those are well and truly earned through navigating some of the heavier arrangements.

See to it that you listen to Stateless in one sitting, giving it your complete undivided attention. There’s a cinematic quality to this project that I can’t really put into words; you’ll know when you hear it.
