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??
