Alright, a new bvdub! And it's the first CD in Home Normal's Made In Japan series where (you guessed it) the packaging is all made in Japan! It comes in a slimline DVD case and inside the case you get 2 paper inserts on this sweet thick matte paper and there's 2 slides in each CD as well (all unique means none of the them are the same!). Like snowflakes in the night. They look great. Not only do they look great, they sound great too! On each CD you get a 79 minutes and 4 second journey into the world of Brock Van Wey. There are four tracks...no idea what the titles are but I'm not sure how important that is as when you listen to it, it just feels like one piece of music with some intervals. The first track is totally gorgeous with its warm droney soundscapes, echoey looped female vocals (which just fall over each other in some sort of continual random loop) and some beats pop up to liven up the proceedings. From that you're lulled into a distant echoey world of ambience on a very epic scale. I'm reminded a bit of Gas (without the distant sounding muddy beats), perhaps a bit of Mark van Hoen, early Seefeel and also some of the very early ambient techno from the early 90's. The female vocals with the dub techno beats just get me every time and when they're smothered in the layers of warm ambience this good it's hard to ignore. It's done brilliantly well though and I think this is by far his most accomplished album yet. I can genuinely see this being a future classic one day. Genius.
this is a real beauty. Recommended to me by the one and only legendary Mike Randall just yesterday (March 9th I believe). Lush layered and erm..lovely, thank you alliteration. Aesthetically this looks like it was packaged by someone sexy and the art parallels the sound with alarming parity. Brings to mind Stars Of The Lid, Fennesz and some of the more 'avant' Kranky and Constellation bands. Buy this.Noel Yaxley wrote this
