I've got another of those pretty and limited CDs from Sound In Silence on my review stack today. This one's by David Newlyn and features 10 tracks of delicate electro acoustic ambience and minimal piano tinkling.
Over the course of the album Newlyn shifts from droney ambience to solitary neoclassical piano prettiness from the Nils Frahm / Harold Budd school of supremely classy heartstring-tugging, particularly evocative in 'Theory', but for the most part there are brittle threads of piano sadness ringing through gently lapping loops of wavering drone, sheet-ice electronic shimmers and clicking, fluttering static.
There's a nostalgic, timeless feel to this music, with its refined textural richness and slowly unfolding heartfelt melodies. 'Broadcast' is another stand-out, full of reverb-laden piano sadness stretched out into foggy drones, which are contrasted with bright synthetic cosmic whooshes which throb and glide squelchily in the middle-distance. It's a good CD, therapeutic and thoughtful but still a bit playful and not too beard.
