Oh yes! We’ve just got this in: it’s the second album from Billow Observatory -- Jonas Munk of Manual/Causa Sui fame and Jason Kolb of Auburn Lull. Time to get gently excited: seven blissful tracks of icy-misty electronics, with an at times minimally pulsing, subtly krautrocky feel.

The analog synths breathe and expand as wisps of dry ice through thin air. ‘Plains’ is a marvel of a track, and one to drift away to. It puts me in mind of Brian Eno’s most spacey compositions, as on his ‘Evening Star’ record with Robert Fripp. On ‘Vex’, the most distant sounds of chimes and choristers ring through the haze. Kolb and Munk have most definitely set the controls for Eternally Chilled.
