The debut album by Glaswegian ambient musician Pete Burton. Ethereal electronic music ranging from ambient, drone to experimental percussion structures with a hint towards the kosmische Zeitgeist. All guitars, synths and percussion instruments played by Pete Burton, with a strong focus on live improvisation. Pete is stronlgy influenced by Krautrock acts such as Popol Vuh or Tangerine Dream but also modern ambient music like Biosphere etc.

8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 29 August 2014
Clawing my way wearily to the summit of review mountain this week I have stumbled upon this intriguing CD by Timedog, in a numbered run of just 150, which contains an album of atmospheric electronic minimalism full of barely-there rhythms, electrical-interference flutters, and synthetic drips and twitches.
It all glides past with a cold, weightless momentum, long-tailed synths bleep and wiggle and drone while a distant waterfall spits static and someone pounds a broom into the ceiling of a room three houses away, although at times the beats move sharply into the foreground like in 'Delayed Choice'. When a simple melodic progression turns up on 'Expectations' with its strange cascading electro-plinks it seems almost like a maverick move.
As it goes along the tracks seem to divide themselves into two groups, there's the drone-based pieces with long stretched tones and subtly bubbling details, and then there's some emptier-sounding numbers which make use of the negative space for an unsettling Moritz Von Oswald Trio-gone-dark-ambient kind of post-dub dread-psych way. There's a nice balance between the two, and lots of interesting tones and heady atmospheres to be found by the 150 people who manage to snag one of these discs.
