RIYL: Brian Eno, Hammock, Kyle Bobby Dunn
Label: Beyond Beyond is Beyond
Brooklyn ambient artist John Bohannon understands the power of the slow build. ¬†If you’ve ever watched the sun go down on a cloudy horizon, laid underneath¬†rows of trees swaying in a breeze or sat on your porch as a distant storm approaches, then you understand¬†too. ¬†The title track off Ancient Ocean’s newest album Titan’s Island¬†begins as a minimal synth loop, but rewards listeners with every passing second as pedal steels and field recordings are¬†layered into its sublime atmosphere. ¬†Listen to it below and¬†lose yourself.
Fans of Brian Eno’s Music for Airports, Kyle Bobby Dunn’s In Miserum Stercus or any of Rafael Anton Irisarri’s albums should grab Titan’s Island with the quickness. ¬†There’s even a bundle that includes the limited vinyl of Ancient Ocean’s previous album Blood Moon for just $30. ¬†That’s $15 a record, man. ¬†What are you waiting for??
