A really nice CD here from Russian duo Daydreamer, titled in tribute to our favourite French writer, thinker (and erstwhile goalie). I'd like to say he was an existentialist but he would have vigorously denied such a thing. Is this an existentialist album? No. It's certainly an excellent collection of thoughtful cinematic ambience, tentative post-rock tropes and atmospheric electronics.
As you know with Time Released Sound, there is also a very limited art edition, the sheer ornate existence of which somewhat eclipses the actual music due to the tireless hand-crafted attention to detail lavished on such a thing. A certain member of our team is somewhat cynical about these expensive, lavish packages but me, I'm blown away every time by the sheer love poured into them. If you have extraneous funds at your disposal I'd heartily endorse your spendthrift ways. Considering what millions of people spend hoofing drugs up their noses for pleasure, this is a much better way of blowing your pay packet.
Musically this CD is a languid, exploratory creature, effortlessly merging widescreen drones, dark ambient fog, occasional implicit downtempo beats and some flourishes of sweetly melancholy acoustic action into a vastly absorbing journey that can range between a dreamy sun-dappled jaunt to being lost in a chilly, inhospitable chasm within the space of a couple of tracks. 'Camus' never gets particularly over-doomy however, yet your moods will be subtly manipulated throughout this highly involving and accomplished recording. There is plenty of scintillating sonic ephemera and sound-art glitch here for the headphones brigade.
