8/10 according to on Fri 14 Mar, 2014

Here's my final review of the week and it's a difficult one! Not because the music is unpleasant, it truly isn't, but simply because there isn't much happening here. This is highly tasteful minimal ambience. There are some smooth drones, some graceful Budd-esque piano slowness, some humming, flickering electronic drones, some quaveringly physical string drones, electric hums and watery, distant field recordings. It's all delivered with impeccable grace and sleepy beauty. Really, it's lovely, so subtle and beautiful.
I still have space to fill in this review but I have run out of things to say so I will share the list of instruments Illuha plays on this record: Analog electronics and treatments, Minimoog, Memory Moog, Prophet '08, Pro One, Six-Trak, Nord Lead, DX-7, Blofeld, OP-1, grand piano, Rhodes, pianet, Wurlitzer, prepared and hammered piano, pump organ, acoustic and electric guitars, upright bass, vibraphone, drums and percussion, field recordings, found objects, cassette tapes, reel to reel tapes.
Lots of textures basically, layers of textures that move in a graceful sleepy drift for nearly an hour. And relax.

So, what do you think?
