9/10 ReviewBot3000 03 September 2013

Swedish drone master Tobias Hellkvist is back this week with a new CD on Japanese label Small Fragments. It spreads four tracks over a delicately flowing 35 minutes full of his graceful washes of glistening guitar drone carving out slowly developing melodies, accompanied subtly by “organ, candlesticks and more instruments”, the press release tells me.

What matters for you the listener, though, is that these are celestial waveforms that will whisk you away into somewhere more serene as the blurred, indistinct melodies soothe your weary mind. It’s not music to be rushed, and so isn’t well suited to the Norman review style, but a record to be savoured when you’ve got the house to yourself and a cup of something nice. A cut above the majority of his drone contemporaries, this is absolutely gorgeous stuff.
