In The Dust Of Idols

Let the existential malaise of winter well and truly set in, and do it to the new Specimens record. The boss of the excellent emerging label First Terrace, Alex Ives' solo work is marked by a keen ear for the various modes of ambient music, from Lawrence English's potent and fuzzy drone to the loops of William Basinski. In the Dust of Idols contemplates death and what comes after it, but sounds beautiful in the process.

Finely-textured ambient dronescapes from Specimens, presenting his first full-length album. Sculptures contains nine tracks that both stand tall and dig deep, enshrouding the listener in thick curtains of electronics, occasionally bolstered by sampling and acoustic instrumentation. Vinyl release on First Terrace, the label run by Alex Ives (Specimens himself).
