9/10 Brian Staff review, 16 September 2011

Yo. Listen up, this is fresh, like, ambience ja? I was wondering if Brock Van Wey was becoming one of those omnipresent doyens of the horizontal set whose music just became aural wallpaper after a while but hearing this magnificent new Glacial Movements release, I'm afraid to admit you're all going to have to buy this one as well. His work, even at its most rudimentary, evokes feelings of beautiful, desolate places and unspoiled nature. It's not merely a glacial sound as such; this is as much music for forests with hidden glades teeming with rustling wildlife and streams...waterfalls. It would suit a breezy Arctic morning as much as a slowly cooling balmy desert in an evening. But it is the cold climes it suits the most, looped spectral choirs emerge from a storm of snowy mist to embrace your soul. Through the gentle warming hiss of the first movement a slow pulse of a beat enters left and exits right after a few minutes. It's so stark and thoughtful, just walking alongside the blissful drone waves, not even guiding, just a brief companion. 

Van Wey's music is so lovingly layered, often with some of the most lilting cyclic loops of beauty! It's as tranquillising as it is rousing with eternal waves of shimmering, lull-inducing velvet noise washing over you like a gentle lapping aural sea. There's definitely similarities with the more ambient end of Seefeel's material and Wolfgang Voight's beloved Gas output in the womb-like containment of these pieces. 'I Remember' seems almost symphonic in places due to its intensity, 'Would it be the Same' takes the full onslaught down a peg or two with a wistful piano giving way to some experimental skittery beats that calms down into something akin to the last Biosphere album (N-Plants), ie. quality ambient techno/downtempo IDM. Those sleepy rushes of hovering aural codeine still hang around in the background attempting to knock you into a dream-filled coma though! The Balearic ethereal-isms of T5 soon relax even further into a post-Slowdive shimmer, enveloped in the usual celestial clouds. The finale has quite Germanic overtones, like the aforementioned Voight remixing The Field, removing the beat and letting all this shifting phantasmagoria of sound holler and pulsate through the looped synthesis of the sound of a giant using a corrugated tin roof as a harp. Beautiful stuff as always.
