Shrouding, engulfing ambient. Longtime Kranky artists, Windy and Carl are husband/wife duo Windy Weber and Carl Hultgren who compose always dreamy, sometimes spacey and psychedelic soundscapes. Vocals sparsely included to provide a human anchor to the out-of-body drifting. A heaping of guitar delay and emotive, harmonic, dense drones in one sitting. Hypnotic, expansive, and beautiful. For fans of The Lickets, William Basinski, Stars of the Lid. All tracks bleed into each other so beware.

1. Acoustic guitar strum and gentle female vocals ward off static hiss. (3:01)
*2. (play w/ #3) Melodic, spaced waves of keys, guitars, and airy vocals. Pure bliss. Moves directly into track 3. (6:04)
3. Beautiful celestial hovering with a piano comedown. (6:55)
4. Simple, sunny, melodic spaced guitar pattern sparkled and repeated.(3:59)
*5. Incredible layered, looped, hypnotic drone built on washes of guitars and ebbing bass. (12:04)
6. Distant guitar distortion takes the lead, weird spoken-sung snippets. (8:49)
7. Another humming buzz drives the synth, key, and guitar swirling accompaniment. (7:24)
*8. Orangeasm-sized, wall-of-sound drone, comprised of vocal samples, organs, and distorted guitar feedback. Towering, relaxing, and heart-wrenching. (18:55)
