Loscil have been mainstays of the ambient scene for some time, recording both with Kranky and Ghostly International. Here they (I often say they but it's actually a 'he', Scott Morgan) produce a new work for Glacial Movements based upon the coastal mountains of the Pacific Northwest, studded with glaciers, lakes and other natural beauty. Oh, how I would like to visit. Anyway these are remarkably tranquil pieces, instantly achieving a peaceful state of mind that immediately takes me away from the hustle-bustle of your modern day online record store and into a rural dream world. The synth sounds are beautifully soft, like being whisked off into a cloud and I love the subtle touches that pervade the work. Little hints of sub bass that creep into the mix, keeping the sound on the right side of the new age disaster line. Phil is reminded of very early Orb (without the ephemera), I'm reminded of a less organic Stars of the Lid and some of the sounds heard on the impressive recent work of bvdub. This is even more minimal than Loscils's previous work. There are no beats, no clutter, just simple beautiful drone with string (or synth string) one note lines overlaid. It's incredibly patient, incredibly precise celestial music. You need to let it build, envelop you and you will reap the rewards. The nice low end chatter occasionally glimpsed under the mix gives a slight dub techno feel to some of the tracks particularly 'Neve' which is darker with Gas-like drones but overall this is fine ambient music for late night listening pleasure.
