4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | October 26th 15

You know those rainy days where it almost feels uncomfortable not to be lying in bed doing nothing but relaxing, not caring, and possibly getting a little stoned? That's basically what A Fragile Geography sounds like. Rafael Anton Irisarri is a master at making this type of atmosphere, and on this new record of his, he does it just as well as he's ever done. Musically, it's an ambient record, but it blankets you in drones that, when coming from a good pair of headphones, almost massage your brain. Things can get pretty loud, like on "Reprisal", but more often than not, it's just beautifully subdued ambient drone. Some tracks may use conventional instruments, but they are used pretty minimally, like the strings on "Secretly Wishing For Rain". Although it's not necessarily all that new of a concept, especially for Irisarri, the record is still another great addition to his discography, and thus, shouldn't be overlooked.
