"Planetariums were meant for music like this," gushes the press release for Craig Padilla's 'Sonar' - a full double LP exploration of classic kosmische vibes which is out on Fruits De Mer as a follow-up to their mammoth 4LP & CD cosmic comp 'Strange Fish'. It's pretty fair to say that if you've managed to digest all of that one already, this will provide the extra fix you're looking for.   It's full of silky, slow-drifting space-synth voyages which will appeal to fans of the Deep Distance label, JD Emmanuel, or even Emeralds' more languorous moments. The tracks unfold in unhurried, hypnotic spirals, some of them running past the 20-minute mark, and centre around gliding synth drones, gentle arpeggios, and subtle sequencing. The atmosphere is concordant and therapeutic throughout - I thought I heard a bit of smooth Mark McGuire-esque guitar at one point but the sleeve assures me that this 2LP voyage is synths all the way through.   If you're into your cosmic relaxo-synth business then this will no doubt have you floating on air. Very cool smoky-looking vinyl too.
