Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2012-03-30 
Instrumental ambient. Nothing heavy or noisy-- dreamy spacey tones in minimal, cavernous washes. Atmospheric, relaxed starry soundscapes. Really slow pieces built around guitars, keyboards, violins, feedback, delay. One of the first artists I heard on KZSU that pushed me out of my comfort zone. Reminds me a bit of Eno, thisquietarmy. Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky.

1. Two chord astral churn. (6:15)
2. Foreboding drone and celestial keys. (4:13)
3. Leaving the spacecraft and cutting the cord. (7:14)
*4. Beautiful grainy texture and warbly melody. (2:15)
5. Shimmering stalactites splitting in slow motion. A dronier second half follows, as the cycles and washes increasingly adopt a menacing feel. (14:11)
*6. Twisted acoustic guitar, bells, droning strings, and dark beauty. Reminds me of Current 93, even Swans. (4:06)
7. Dreamy slow atmospheric build with dark synth and keys supporting the delay-heavy guitar GY!BE-esque lead. (7:15)
