Description: A very different offering from low-end stargazing minimalists Minus Pilots. Both 'Hotel Twenty 7' and 'Gather, Gather' see the bassists successfully blend their trusty old analogue delay/looping pedals with some newly introduced overdrive/distortion effects units. It’s vast, compelling and melancholic with sprawling textures, ambitious dynamics and lots of distortion punctuating the bands usual gentle atmospheres. Luscious bass dissonance.
Even if he says otherwise, Ian Hawgood is super prolific and incredibly talented in not only his own releases, but in collaborations and with the heart & soul put into the labels he's run over the years.
Saying all that, this is a more recent favorite release of Ian's: peaceful, deceivingly simple (yet not!) piano works that is personal, elegant and graceful in its warmth and presentation. Plus it's for a wonderful cause. Get it!! Joe Borreson
"Dissolve" shows a lot of unique and emotional layers and textures. To people who haven't heard this so far, you need to hear this because this is what ambient deserves to be: slow, drifting, and able to evoke emotions which they do perfectly. 6 amazing songs to get lost inside. Visual Complexity
