The surely sleepy Keith Berry makes music while hibernating, creating the sort of brain-fogged beauty I can only imagine coming out of a pure and dreamless night. Having made lovely records like ‘Simulacra’ for a long while now, he knows exactly how to make an ear-coating lullaby, using slowly avalanching chords and raindrop tape hiss towards total peace. That this record was in fact made from repurposed leftovers of past album ‘Elixir’ makes sense -- his music has a green footprint in that it can be made again from itself.
These slowly enrapturing phases of sound are familiar, echoing the plethora of quietly crackling releases by Chihei Hatakeyama and Federico Durand, but they should put their listener way too far at ease to make comparisons. This record’s minimal sound works in frames of drone we’re used to -- it foregrounds blaring but gentle chords and lets the acoustics quietly bristle against them -- to create a much needed domain of rest.
