Album Review

Reviewed 2012-06-12
One of the founders of the awesome Words on Music label releases this calming, pleasant, intimate, beat-less album on his Tench imprint. All the songs have a similar, soothing palette of sound, so I’ve mostly listed the types of sounds on each track. Most songs contain field recordings. Every track is pretty, especially 3, 8, 9. No lyrics, no FCCs.

1. (2:59)—Bleeping electronics and music-box-like sounds. Some sort of scraping (in a nonabrasive way) noise in the background.
2. (2:49)—Bubbling electronics, piano, chimes.
3. *(2:49)—Very soft plucked guitar, piano, chimes, ghostly vocal-like sounds.
4. (3:09)—Bubbling electronics, piano, field recordings, chimes.
5. (3:54)—Piano, glimmering electronics.
6. (2:32)—Music-box-like electronics and crumpling, snapping sounds.
7. (2:53)—Manipulated sounds, piano, ambient keyboard piano.
8. *(3:22)—Crumpling sounds, tranquil piano, chiming electronics, keyboard drones.
9. *(4:01)—Piano, ambient keyboard piano, keyboard drones, clinking glasses.
10. (3:15)—Soft drones, piano, chirping sounds.
11. (5:28)—Ambient keyboards and a soft, machine-like sound that’s difficult to identify.
