Well, this one's lovely! Tom James Scott has here put together three lengthy pieces of experimental minimal type goodness that falls very much in the soothing and therapeutic camp. Opener 'Skire' has a repeated chiming guitar refrain with heavy reverb over high, glassy drones and field recordings of waves crashing onto a beach, while its counterpoint on the first side, 'Lown', has swelling processed and synthesised chords over gently lapping water, giving a stiller and calmer sensation than the opener. Flip it and we've got the side-long title track, which layers undulating mid- and low-end drones for an ethereal, gradually shifting tone experience as the relationships between the notes gradually reveal points of resonance and dischord, unity and chaos. Melodies emerge out of the shifting waves of sound only to be lost again. This whole LP is a really well thought out and relaxing exercise in cerebral minimalism. Totally worth a go if you like your records soothing and repetitive.
