Album Review
Reviewed 2014-01-31 
Dreamlike, blissful, entrancing fingerpicked guitar. Overwhelmingly atmospheric and pleasant daydreaming. Nick Drake comparison is too simplistic - Dickson's music is slower, more spacious, and unconscious. Re-release of his first full length (originally on Drifting Falling, now out of print), with the addition of previously unreleased tracks, “Ping Pong” and “Cara.” RIYL: Nick Drake, Burt Jansch, Grouper, Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick. Heavily atmospheric, I'd recommend throwing a few on continuous, but if you want to play the hits, I've noted them below. Many tracks sound similar. Unhurried and gorgeous.

*1. ambient blanket wash and delicate drone. grouper. 5:18
*2. gutting, otherworldly, slow, naked love song. 4:26
3. 2:54
4. collapse into lots of space, pleasant 5:55
5. More "pop" in structure, impressive guitar work. 4:23
*6. Lengthy, exploratory variation on a harmonic mood. 5:04
7. Rhythmic, wordless tides. 3:22
8. 4:04
9. 4:35
*10. harp-like, mesmerizing plucking surge. 6:27
11. Some digital static thrown in. 5:11
12. 4:38
13. 2:41
