This mysterious 7" from 36 houses three songs and very little information. The music itself is way lovely though so I'm just going to chat about that.
The order of the day here is clouds of blissed out synth drone wrapped in cotton wool, only the very softest sounds accepted. 'Sun Riders' is like the sound of rays of light blasting their way gently through the clouds in a shower of parallel peace artillery; a wistful chord sequence that drifts along almost formless, shining with glassy treble and holistic mid, it has a very therapeutic feel to it but not in a new agey way.
There's two drone on the other side too. 'Enshrine Exit' is a bit less spiritual than the A side, introducing some weird phased static chatter as well as the swelling peace drones, which seems a bit more hestitant this time round. It's still very thoughtful, uplifting ambience, but with things going on in the distance, like you're locked in a pod of calm while everyone else is going about their business,it finally closes with some twinkles and voices counting down, which leads us into the very different closer 'Hyperbox'. This one is all twinkles and micropercussion, with the sonic theme seeming to be clockwork music boxes, but they're arranged into sleepy little loops of chiming and clicking cleverness with only the slightest vocal embellishment (that the song could do without really but that's nitpicking in the extreme).
Overall this is delicious, finely crafted soul-fortifying ambience from a man we can trust. If his previous releases are anything to go by then if you want this you should grasp it before it vanishes forever.
