Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Wind Tide is a multidisciplinary art presence inhabiting the sonic, visual, and conceptual realms of Gretchen Korsmo and Andrew Weathers. Wind Tide also functions as their recording space in Texas, while extending to off-site locations in the field, as both artists have a relationship with nature and landscapes.

"Blue Breaking Brown" is both sprawling and focused, with mysterious drifting vocals emerging and receding along swathes of resonant guitar drones. Room tone, bells, synthesizer, lap steel, and percussion elements drift over one another like transparent textiles, or variants of light and shadow on distant surfaces.

Gretchen and Andrew are both involved in the Full Spectrum Records collective, whose supportive energy is present here: sounds exist as singular entities, yet coalesce to create two beautiful, intense, and engaging side-long documents of performance."-Notice Recordings

He also performs and records regularly with Tender Crust, Wind Tide, Satin Spar, Tamarisk, Llano Estacado Monad Band, Tethers and Real Life Rock & Roll Band.
