I mean its not really that great. For an artists who makes pretty amazing deep house music, his take at atmospheric ambient music really isn't there at all.
A really stellar 3rd album for Nandi. Everything sounds so lush and surreal. Like you're floating on an eternal cloud. My only negative is that the record doesn't play around enough with more sounds and it becomes one-dimensional after a while.
Are You in Love?
The first half of the record is a decent showing of indie-folk and chamber pop with country elements to it. However, the second half of the record is much more water down ideas. Plus the mixing, for the most part, isn't great.
Music For Film
A haunting, atmospheric ambient and modern classical piece that is a great peace to listen to while reading or doing other things, but when I fully sit down to listen to it it's textually missing a lot of what makes really amazing ambient music really amazing. But I still enjoy it for the feeling it gives me: someone is watching you at all times.
Spirituality and Distortion
Igorrr is an electronic artists who does things in a very unconventional way by fusing so many different genres and through the years each album becomes more and more refined. On his most recent release, the French artist is showing off his chops for making the weird sound so great. The biggest gripe is he could have shaved off a few of the last 5 or 6 tracks, because after 40 minutes I wish the record would end already. Otherwise, it's a great great album!
Sufjan Stevens and Lowell Brams
Honestly, I have absolutely loved the last two projects Sufjan has put out that are ambient pieces that have the soundscape of space. I really have nothing negative with this record other than I wish some of the production wasn't so washed out. Otherwise, I am blown away by this almost masterpiece.
It's really good instrumental hip-hop. But it's also nothing to write home about really. Most of the songs kind of fell the same and it's more or less just a jam session that Knxwledge had 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s soul, funk, gospel, and jazz. So overall I enjoy it, but I wish it was filled with more than what is presented here.
