9/10 Phil Staff review, 24 September 2009
Chihei Hatakeyama is well popular these days. We sold tons of his his last few albums. We couldn't get enough of 'em! After releases on Kranky, Room 40, Under The Spire and Spekk the fella has turned into somewhat an ambient drone superstar of late. His new opus is called The River and it's released on the up and coming Hibernate label (last release was Ian Hawgood). This is seriously lush sounding music. Yeah it's more drone and tone and that's seems to be half of what we get some weeks but this guy does it so well it will make you sick. Once you get over your illness you'll be all calm and will succumb to his warm ambient charms. The melodies waft in and out like little gusts of wind, the tones and drones are very much like a river gently flowing down the river and it all combines to make a completely lovely pastoral sounding thing of beauty. If you're into this whole ambient drone scene and are digging the likes of the Infraction label, Under The Spire, Home Normal etc then this is an essential purchase. 500 copies only in digi wigi pack.
