A warm camp-fire of an album

This album is at once folksy and hi-tech, seamlessly blending acoustic instruments with meowling synth tones, laptop processing, field recordings, and digital shimmers. The tracks are all purely instrumental (no vocals), and revolve around wistful melodies or chords set against a warm aura of electronic sound. I've never heard anything like it before, but it still somehow sounds totally familiar and comforting. Excellent music from an excellent label!

BUY BEAMS

If you don't like most ambient music I would not recommend buying the entire album. However, I highly recommend buying Beams. Other tracks I liked in particular were: Reperto, Dripstone, Parade, Mystery Mutiny, Beams Out, and Illuminations, though I think Beams trumps all the other tracks. You might like Tired Tape Machine or Boris' Mabuta No Ura. Check out the soundtrack for Hälsningar Från Skogen which has Beams and other nice tracks (available only as a limited production CD box set). Or, just get Beams and enjoy!
