This Patch of Sky
We play music without words to communicate without language.

This Patch Of Sky is an instrumental post-rock band from Eugene, OR. Their music is a gentle, spellbinding tapestry of sounds and emotions. From the quiet hope of 'Lyssna' to the weather-beaten contemplation of 'Time Destroys Everything, But Our Foundation Remains', they have crafted a style that fuses blissful ambient synthesis with raw, organic embellishments played by strings, guitars and percussion. A true pleasure to listen in leisure and a powerfully sincere and atmospheric option for filmmakers.

"Rare is the band that improves with every release, but this Oregon septet has done it again. This self-titled album – the band’s fourth – is its best yet, representing another leap forward. To those unfamiliar with the band: it’s time to start noticing." - A Closer Listen

"This Patch Of Sky is more than a collection of eight songs: it’s an experience that will let you explore the most beautiful sonic landscapes." - Echoes and Dust

With their fourth release in as many years, TPOS have transformed from an eccentrically aggressive style of post-rock that attempted to lure in listeners with catchy hooks and flashy guitar work to what is now one of the most complete and full sounding post-rock bands in the world." - Postrockstar

"We can guess these guys in This Patch of Sky all read huge leather bound books and shit, and they all rock well-worn denim and perfectly complementary colors and patterns of plaid, but after spending hours upon hours with this album, I'd like to think their decision making abilities as it pertains to song construction is their most impressive collective trait." - SYFFAL

"TPOS appears to have learned patience, letting each build rise in tension, allowing it to grow slowly and organically, letting the feelings come when they’re ready rather than applying an almost punk rock impatience to the the formula, as so many young instrumental bands do." - Exiled In Eugene

Childspeak
Childspeak
Near the end of 2013, four like minded artist reached out to one another to escape from the gray and dreary Eugene winter. First playing music together as a project for friendship’s sake, the group soon found that their mutual creativity expanded beyond music, and within this environment their talents could grow. Over time this heaven allowed for free experimentation and soon the conglomeration of their individual interests and musical talents formed the unique blend known as Childspeak. Mixing structure with improvisation, imagery with sound and history with emotion, the post-rock mixed media group shares a passion for exploring creativity and feeling in whatever form it strikes.

Fed from a desire to create and grow, the group found the formation to be quite serendipitous. All lead from different paths, the meeting of Derek, Bryan, Bri and Tj would be a crossroads in all their lives, helping them grow and flourish as individuals and together as the Childs family.

The band released their debut full length album, Daydream Sparkle Party in December 2015 as a suggested donation download on bandcamp.com. The album was fully produced in Portland, Oregon. Recorded and mixed by Kevin Drake at Dead Aunt Thelma's Studios, mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Audio and the album artwork was produced by Bri Childs.
