Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-01-02
Very nice, ambient/”chill out” electronic sounds. Even though it is electronic it often has an “organic” feeling to it. Specifically, the beats, bass and other elements all flow with a steady, natural, “it’s just right” vibe. Pretty close to the down tempo moments of Autechre and M83.

((((1)))) Starts failry slow then picks up with lots of bright tones and minimal beats.
((((2)))) Bell-like beat, with 1-2 tempo, pretty minimal but also sort of catchy.
(((((3))))) Down tempo for kittens and babies? Warm & fuzzy, chime-laden, bright, with spring-like beats that pick it off the floor. Great!
((((4)))) Odd-metered, fractured sorta funky dub. Interesting.
((((5)))) Mellow but scurrying & quick electronics, noises and some random but OK female vox. Takes a few spins to fully get it but rather good.
((((6)))) Slow and expanding waves, fast-ish beat in the background.
((((7)))) Vinyl surface noise then a really nice, “spindly?” series of electronics and randomness.
(((8))) Too random and no very structured.
(((9))) Sample with some kid talking about a ghost name Charlie. Later it’s almost droney but fast electronic and beats ‘ala M83.
(((10))) Up tempo, kinda club ready, some OK female vox but the electronics mostly random and the beats/tempo jump around a lot.
((((11)))) Long, simple, bright electronics with some solid beats.
