- Tourism by Fluorescent Heights

A gentle swaying arpeggio is never gonna disappoint my ears...ever. If it's a light bouncy affair with a little tape echo or delay added to suggest melodic infinity I'm instantly sold. Henrik Stelzer a.k.a Fluorescent Heights begins 'Tourism' with a perfect example of the kind of thing I mean. Juno 6 with the arpeggio on hold - a 6 step cascading melody - tons of 'verb - and you're home. It's so beautifully simple and yet it never fails to please. 'Tourism' is a synth record...and I mean just synths. It's the kind of record I'd assumed I'd be hearing more of in 2012 but is in surprisingly scant supply of late. It's the kind of ambience I can get behind due to its inherent dependency of arpeggio to create a pulse-like rhythm...I can't listen to ambient music without, it just doesn't work for me. 'Tourism' is chocker with these reflective new age-sounding loops of dreamy ambience. The crunching tone of these analogue synths are a record in themselves and Stelzer is aware of this - harnessing the simplest of motifs into full conceived pieces with little to no effort. Blissful stuff and well worth your time. Recommended to folk who like Dolphins Into The Future, High Wolf, Eno, Stella Om Source, Oneohtrix Point Never, Nest, Emeralds...the list goes on.
