Backwater Revisited

Muscovite label DRONARIVM (Machinefabriek, bvdub) drop another collection of gorgeous, wintry ambient music in the form of Halftribe’s Backwater Revisited. These delicate instrumentals crackle like rice-paper. Soft-focus production augments a set of crackling, lamp-lit drones. Backwater Revisited is given motion by spare curls of melody - a piano here, what might be an overdriven keyboard there. This is a lovely LP that recalls Fennesz and Oren Ambarchi at their most reflective.

For The Summer, Or Forever

Northern Irish Halftribe’s (Ryan Bisset’s) third album and Russian imprint Dronarivm’s fifty-third catalogue entry arrives punctually to soundtrack the coming summer - or eternity, apparently, if you like. It is indeed suitably warm and familiar stuff, going straight for the bliss-out button with dreamy, droning pieces mixing airy synths and calm field recordings.
