Mountains – Choral (Thrill Jockey Records 211)
Ambient and organic soundscapes from Brooklyn duo Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp on the constantly intriguing Thrill Jockey imprint. Think Brian Eno meets Christian Fennesz and Marsen Jules for some oolong tea and an evening staring at a campfire. Introspective and aurally pleasing. This is home listening for waking and sleeping. Also nice for early morning transit. Check it.
See them live in Toronto on Tuesday April 28th, 2009 at The Music Gallery. I’ll be there.
Edit: I was there.
Second Edit: “Choral” makes #8 on my best of 2009 list here.
