Infraction is a label which has constantly floated our ambient boat. I'm yet to hear a duff release on the label. The guy who runs the label must have magic robot music ears or something. Here's another corker from the label by husband and wife duo Celer. I can't imagine making music with my wife... it's hard enough being in the same room together sometimes. 'Discourses Of The Withered' is one of the finest pieces of ambient drone I've heard in ages. Waves and pulsing ambience washing over my ears some of the loveliest warmest sounds I've heard in a while. This is the first of 2 albums due from Celer on Infraction. This one is limited to 500 and the forthcoming 'The Everything And The Nothing' is limited to 300. Not heard that one yet but if it's anything like this then I can't wait. Apparently the sounds are created largely by strings and then manipulated to the joy that you hear. Anyone into Stars Of The Lid (again) is gonna love this. Brilliant!!

A real find, both the artist and this release in particular.  I've been waiting for something new in the field of ambient/minimal/drone for a while now. Most of my recent finds have fallen short of the "Greats", the Eno releases from the 70's the stuff by Jonathan Coleclough etc... Too many albums sound like they were made in the brain of a laptop by a teenager who's just heard of Aphex Twin, well not this one.

The music here, and it is music not just sounds/noise is a gripping series of drones and ambient washes backed up by a wistful melancholic slow burning arrangement almost string like but never twee. It's in my top 50 for this year but so are all the other Celer releases I've heard - buy it.
