Friends, please start off your day right. It’d be such a shame if you didn’t. Sometimes a weekday workday morning needs a jingle-jangle solution, and Jake Muir’s ‘Lady’s Mantle’ is it, a lovely, warm record that takes me to pebble beaches with deck chairs and market squares with house plants. It’s ambient music creating a new age postcard landscape.
Muir made ‘Lady’s Mantle’ by squishing together the entrails of pop music made back in day, essentially retooling old surfer jams as submarining drone. Stretched out melodies mingle with aquatic field recordings and salt-air conversations, the record becoming a sort of deep-diving easy listening. The ocean is wide and cavernous, but in Muir’s world it’s a comfort, always washing up onto friendly shores.
While Muir’s record might sound like the kinda thing you get every other week on the excellent Further and room40 imprints, it has its own special tenor. This is ambient music as a tone poem, an unabashedly conceptual piece of music about sea sounds, whale songs and cove comforts. On this record Muir finds his own place for peace and listening to it makes it ours, too -- even mine, and I can’t think of anything scarier than being all at sea.
