About 4-5 months ago I got completely obsessed by the last Library Tapes CD on Resonant. It absolutely blew me away.... at the time I thought it was nice enough but one day it just punched me in the face. So this new CD on Make Mine Music was practically enough to take me over the edge of excitement. This is beautiful stuff!! It's pretty much just piano and field recordings. Some of the field recordings are pretty far out there but they're punctuated by this gorgeous piano which takes you to a different plateau of sheer fantastic-ness. This is absolute genius and if you're a fan of Sylvain Chauveau, David Sylvian, Max Richter etc I can see no reason why you wouldn't want to be listening to this fantastic thing right now. It also reminds me of the last Fennesz/ Sakamoto collab (Cendre) what with all the crackles and hiss and the piano tinkling. Though it's considerably less well produced (i.e more bedroom produced) and considerably more sombre......Hostluft is CD only tigers.....So many great records out this week....... (I reckon Harold Budd and Hauschka and such piano tinklers are worth mentioning - Ant X)
