In case you didn't know and I suspect if you're bothering to read this then you do, Koen Holtkamp is one half of experimental sound artists Mountains. Here's his 2nd solo album after his debut on Type. The sleeve is lush... nice thick cardboard with an ace letterpress print pasted onto the front of it so it looks hand-made. It's nice when big(ger) labels Thrill Jockey pay this much attention to the packaging. I guess we're in tricky times with physical sales so you need to do what you can to sell things. Fortunately Koen's music sells itself as it's lovely. Droney synth washes with lots of nice tinkles and noises kicking around in the background. It gets kind of mantra ish in it's kosmischeness.... waves of lovelyness pouring themselves all over your ears. It's more droney than previous releases (i.e. not as much going on) and it's less electro-acoustic sounding but if you're into the new wave of cosmic synth business like Oneohtrix, Emeralds, Expo 70 etc then you'll love this!
