- Clair Obscur by Lyndsie Alguire
A cute little package from Canadian piano tinkler Lyndsie Alguire, this comes in a tiny little envelope with 8 Polaroid photos of the lady herself and a hand stamped mini disc, on the musical side this is four tracks of dreamy electronica with Alguire's lush layers of piano and the occasional flourish of found sound, 'I Was Dreaming Of You' is a mere intro to what's in store for the rest of the record, blips and cracks flutter delicately over a warm drone which lead perfectly into 'You Used To Look Happy', a beautiful melodic piano piece accompanied only by a gentle whisper.
Alguire creates a landscape of minimal classical qualities that match the likes of Olafur Arnalds and Stafraenn Hakon, a seamless mix of electronic and organic, 'The Twin Stones' has a rhythmical flow that reminds me of the short lived but excellent Dialect project on Resonant Records, final track 'All Possible Stories' ends things nicely with 10 minutes of ambient bliss and makes 'Clair Obscur' a magical little listen.
