This sounds pretty gorgeous. A lovely tangling of folky acoustic guitarts and weird electronics mixing up folkiness with cosmic synthery. Nods towards Brian Eno, Mountains and early Gastr Del Sol. Beautiful laid back soundscapes are trampled all over by wibbly synths. If you like these two musical forms and wish to see them baked in a pie, try this.

I usually fob the ambient stuff off on Ian these days but as he’s just been run over by a cyclist so I’d better let him sit quietly and lick his wounds.
The soft ambience on this album would be perfect for soothing his aching limbs. Opener ‘Veil’ has the soft sounds of cascading water as a bedrock for some 70’s inspired synth wibblings. All very beautiful, all very calming. The first side of this album continues in this vein, there are lots of softly undulating oscillations and textured dronery which provides a becalmed bed for your ears. Flip it over and ‘Balsam’ could be the highlight of the set with gently plucked acoustics adding an organic element alongside the drones and playful squiggles. ‘Pool’ has a slightly Philip Glass feel with bouncing synths bobbing away gradually being joined by stretched out synths and bass tones.
It’s a pleasant, if slightly samey record. I could have done with some variation particularly some more organic tones but these nostalgic synthscapes will appeal to fans of laid back cosmic twinklings.
