Not as good as The Most Beautiful Blue by a significant margin, but it's very nice nonetheless. It took a few listens to really get into it, and I think it sounds much better on headphones. It's that kind of early-morning pre-dawn drone ...
Obfusc / David Tagg split 2x3"
This came in the mail today and it is a gem for sure. I think this is the best in the Install split series so far (and the others are great too). Never heard of Obfusc before this (his earlier albums are a tired kind of early-00s IDM, it would seem), but his piece is brilliant. And the Tagg is pretty much 15 minutes of bliss. WTF, though, these are way too limited for the quality of the music -- I'd think they could sell double the amount easily. Maybe it's because the custom boxes are so work intensive to create?
Forrest, you can never release enough music as far as I'm concerned. On the other hand, I wish more ambient folks would take 2-3 years between releases and drop bombs (the good kind of bomb) like this on unsuspecting audiences. I keep hitting repeat.
