RTR welcomes Michigan-based multi-instrumentalist Michael Cottone, otherwise known under his performance name of The Green Kingdom, with his latest album, 'Ephemera'. The album contains twelve pieces that evolved from various sonic sketches; some appearing as raw and intimate acoustical passages, others offering beat-orientated electronic progressions. Cottone conjures a sense of deep reflection throughout the album, soundtracking the changing of seasons and inviting the listener into a dream-like state.

"Some of these pieces are recent sketches, conceived and recorded in the moment with little in the way of post production. Others are unused sketches composed for a video game soundtrack. Still others are early versions of final tracks or things that have sat dormant on the hard drive for some time, like the remix of Autumn Toadlick, a track from the first TGK album Meadowview. Whatever the case, I feel that everything coalesced into a nice little ad hoc Green Kingdom album" - Michael Cottone
