- Bordeaux by Harold Budd & Robin Guthrie
'Bordeaux' sees the reuniting of ambient music heavyweights Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and Harold Budd (respected solo artist and Brian Eno collaborator) for what I believe is their third record together in recent years. Widely acknowledged to be leaders in the field and respected artists in their own right it's my assumption that when these two combine forces the pillars of ambient heavens literally shake. 'Bordeaux' was written and recorded in a studio just outside of Bordeaux, France. Here Guthrie fuses his shimmering guitar tones against the elegant piano playing of Harold Budd to create an exceptionally warm if slightly studious ambient workout. Melodically this is strong piece of work with class moments. 'So Many Short Years' has the tone of a sombre moment in some 80s teen movie and is delivered so tastefully it's difficult not to be impressed. They're like the Wyld Stallyns of the ambient world, uniting all planets and races in universal harmony. Lots of nice moments here but definitely one for a quiet night in. Don't go playing it at your disco parties.
