Album Review
Nick Bien
Reviewed 2017-09-29 
Instrumental prog electronica. Composed & recorded during a week off admidst touring. Released along with a film of the music performed live in the desert by the five-piece Floating Points band. Less dance-inspired than previous Floating Points releases.

FCC Clean
Recommended: 2, 4

1. Mojave Desert (2:23) - ambient, minimal, build up
2. Silurian Blue *** (7:01) - Pink Floyd, soft keys filled in with bass & drums ~2:00, complex fills, cool time signatures
3. Kites * (3:16) - sweeping arpeggios with varying speeds, filters & effects
4. Kelso Dunes ** (12:48) - begins with same arpeggios as Kites, speeds up, band adds driving beat ~3:00, building intensity until ~7:15, another build up then dies out
5. Lucerne Valley (3:39) - loose structure, washes of synth with touch of bass
