eclectic psychedelic drone folk artist explores the hazy fringes of his semi dark semi sweet sound and ventures beyond into deeper waters, right in my wheelhouse, perhaps deliberately as this is the first work explicitly commissioned (for lack of a better word) by PSI LAB, NPS hones in on ENO's AMBIENT 4, filters NATURAL SNOW BUILDINGS through a TAKOMA tinted lens with bits of field recordings and tape manipulation, and has a good go at indulgent scuzzy outsider blues guitar bliss, giving SPARKLING WIDE PRESSURE a run for his money, then it all unravels into a glorious INDEX OF METALS esque visceral dark ambient finale, it all comes together so brilliantly, it gels so perfectly, a brazen next level leap
