Time Released Sound have, as we've come to expect, put together a gobsmackingly beautiful but wallet-denting handmade package (check out the press release for details) and a more reasonably priced digipak version of this latest offering by Monochromie, the alias of Marseilles-based composer Wilson Trouvé.

Besides that lush packaging, what you’re getting here is a CD of music. There’s a lot of tinkling piano leading the way, often heavily reverbed and/or accompanied by synth/organ drones and some delicate field recorded touches. It’s contemplative and airy and meditative, lots of graceful minimal melodic shapes which fold in one another in an hypnotic blur of dusty contemplation capturing a fleeting cinematic wistfulness in lolloping loops which strike a delicate balance between organic chaos and churning mechanical relentlessness in a way which sucks the listener into a slack-jawed, dreamy-eyed bong trance. It’s quite emotional in places, the boomy hall reverb and creaking field recordings of 'Lodz' are lain over Olafur Arnalds/Nils Frahm-esque piano gorgeousness.
