TBR: Feb 2nd
Melbourne based electronic music with strong roots in the local scene, Albrecht La'brooy provides us with a deep and textural interpretation of cosmic house and chill zone sounds. Work began on this record after the pair spent some time in one of Australia's beautiful National Parks. Wilson's Promontory sits in a green and lush part of the South Eastern coast. With six servings on the record, the music is said to progress like the times of day, starting at first thing and ending with last thing at night.
Organic loveliness sets the perfect scene as the albumette begins its journey. Just like the sunrise, a smooth and washy guitar melody jams in slow time to a slowly progressing backdrop. On shimmering rays of almost nothing, the first bars dance like wisps of sunny cloud. With each passing moment, the illumination reveals ever more distant horizons from side to side. Subtle rhythm is knitted in panning capsules that fuzz and crackle like bonfire sounds played on vinyl. The wandering quality of the music brings on a sensation of dream mixed with subconscious remembering.
Sublime dream-waves with ghostly reverberations mirror an atmosphere of tranquil beauty and calm. Non-electronic elements run through the release, and as it progresses through each track time of day, more layering and intrigue is permitted to peak above the stillness. Chewy synthesiser and simmering loops marry to the sound of breaking moments. Light on the touch like feathers and gentle fingers and with a perfume of something lively, this relaxation album invites us to sit and be with it. A hungry progression keeps things a little exciting and the consistent whistle of prettiness allows the mind to enjoy.
