Ana & Ina|
On Dockweller Beach

This is listed in places as “Adventurous” for the genre...that’s a new one for me. However, these are two deeply relaxing ambient tunes, with a space-esque quality. Repetitive & droney – just like we like them. Ana & Ina are Ashley Hoffman and Ian James, a writer & visual artist, respectively.
Like: Steve Reich, Christina Vantzou, Zeta One...slowed down
Both very good - prefer 2. Easy fade out opportunities if the track length puts you off.
No FCC’s (Instrumentals)
1) Come In (26.04) Even mellow opening with organ like sounds intermingling with soft laser probes. We are thrusted around the 7-minute mark, into a slighter louder feel, still sedate though. This ebbs away into a chilled ambient section that gains slight momentum towards the end.
2) Come Around (20.04) Slightly more of a gothic ominous feel, not that dark, just enough to notice. The bleakness turns to a slow dawn. The halfway point sees the tempo pick up as the sun starts to shine through. Delicate conclusion.
