9/10 Mike Staff review, 17 January 2013

Koen Holtkamp and Brendon Anderegg, collectively known as Mountains, are back with their most grandiose album of soothing electro acoustic ambience to date. They’ve painstakingly layered electronics, synth drones and cosmic modular bleeps and arpeggios, with guitar, cello, organs and more for a seamlessly blissed out trip which is astonishingly dense and busy for something this relaxing.

Over the course of the album they cover all sorts of calming territory from astral synth work-outs to Stars of the Lid-esque drone swells to twinkly pastoral lushness, the organic and electronic sounds always serving to complement one another and never crowding each other out. In places it’s reminding me of Emeralds but it reaches for a kind of new age celestial tranquility rather than ever going into mind-melting psych-out territory. There’s some lovely fingerpicking on ‘Tilt’ which takes it into pleasantly James Blackshaw/Orfanado-ish territory but still with some subtly phased synth washes and chirps dripping over it, well tasty, especially when followed by the shuddering blissed out astral synth swells of ‘Propeller’. Impeccable stuff, and it’s hard to say this confidently based on just one listen but this could be their best yet.
