Welcome to Skare with some textbook glacial ambience courtesy of the rather useful Glacial Movements label. I like a bit of this I do. The entire label's output is based around cold dark sounding glacial ambience which weirdly makes you feel a bit chilly while it's on. I might have to crank the fire up! Skare are obsessed by the circulation of snow, water and ice so I guess that fits into the whole cold thing nicely. The 1st couple of tracks are very much glacial ambience by numbers. If you like ambient music that's very isolationist and windy sounding then that's what you're getting. The last track (all 26 minutes of it) builds up with crackles and fizzes and some nice tones and eerie samples which separate this from the usual ambient droney sods. It's good. The last track in particular is making me feel well spaced out. Could be the 11 hour shift I've just done though. 'Solstice City' is CD only and it should come with a free penguin. Maybe I'll get a pack from the shops on the way back!
