A somewhat cosmic title and quite fitting or me since I've been obsessed by all things cosmic lately. I drift off looking at the stars thinking how big they are (yet they're so small) and they're so far away and that I'm so small and insignificant. Enough of that and other worlds already. I loved this guys last album. It was simply smashing from start to end so I was reasonably excited by this one (I rarely get more than reasonably excited about anything anymore). It's been on for a couple of tracks so far and it's good. the ingredients are all there, tinkly pianos, electro acoustic business, glitch, drone, ambience and electronics. It's beautiful stuff which is totally calming me down (having a stressful one today). Sunlight On My Desk is all bloopy and lovely and there's some gorgeous sounds in there. 'Streambed Arrangement' is quite disconcerting with a strange wobblesome factor and some micro glitches totally busying my ears. Songs like 'Trickle Down' sound exactly what the title suggests with micro electronic glitchy noises and some xylophoney style noises. It's a very delicate record with lots of warm sounds filling the air between your ears. I think it's quite possibly better than his last album as there's lots of original and unusual sounds on there and I think I'm going to use the word brilliant again.
