We’ve got more of those 3” CDs on Hibernate this week. They seem to have been pretty busy lately, it’s like their releases come in bursts. Or maybe I’m just sometimes not paying enough attention. Their offerings are always dead relaxing though, and this one from offthesky is no exception. The first minute or so passes in near silence, initially giving me cause to fear I’d got a faulty disc or the CD player didn’t like 3”s, but my patience is soon rewarded with some sleepy Harold Budd-esque piano tinkles which cut a sad jib across the first track.
Things are then taken down a notch in the second, ‘Meditae I’ with some distant hissy drones which lead into ‘Exit To Anywhere’ which has field recordings of a train journey perhaps? It’s got a slight industrial feel to it but still sticks within the realms of ambient/field recording business, reminds me a little of some of Chris Watson's stuff. Then ‘Meditae II’ is what you’d expect it to be before we close on ‘Coffins Full Of Life’ with more piano, this time tinkling a little bit livelier than on the opener and accompanied by what sounds like a cello drone. Thoroughly pleasant sleepy sounds once again from the Hibernate crew.
9/10 Aditya Sharma Customer review, 5th September 2013
Well Okay, I have been listening to many releases out there by offthesky since last 2 years. And the first time this very artist, sir Jason hit my heart with his music was with Ten and Tracer - Therapy Refuge.
Well, on this topic, Snow Filled Summer is still playing on my headphones. And is hitting my heart again just like always. The track starts up with a Gradual Swell and Slowly adds in a relaxing white noise. which, gives a feeling of Calmness, well,
"Noise is always calming anyways"

and after two minutes pass. as you are lying down and are hoping for, YES! the same, goddamn Piano! way to Sadden the mood. [IN A GOOD WAY]. There is a sensation in piano, I don't know but it talks..? you know the sound of hitting the piano? like a kick. faint kick? that is a sound in recording that is made when the piano is hardly hit. So i anticipate a brief pain there. Well, that is one explanation. Overall, the piano part is beautifully composed. But hey! do not forget that swell and noise thingy! They add up incredibly!
Now there is something. at 5:17, it sounds like the cello fell down. and they recollect it around at 5:36. pfft... I am kidding!
Overall, The Song is very beautiful. I give it 9 outta 10 as a listener because of the beautiful composition and that cello drop part.
I wrote the review for one track because I do not have the CD for now as my card is not accepting any transitions but if i win £10 voucher, I'm gonna order this album ;)
