RIYL: Rafael Anton Irisarri, The Sight Below
Polish composerÂ MichaÅ‚ Jacaszek has been tinkering and experimenting with ambient soundscapesÂ for well over a decade now, but I feel like he really found his voiceÂ in 2011’s full-length Glimmer.Â Here, he found a meeting point between ambient minimalism and the heart of Poland, a collection of nine songs blanketed in rich ambient drone, field recordings and cavernous studio production. Â It aches with melancholy, butÂ you can feel its warmth seeping through the cracks.
With his newest material, he’s added a delectably eery female vocal accompaniment, a gorgeous marriage withÂ Jacaszek’s otherworldly synth creations. Â Check out the 2 available tracks below from his forthcoming album Kwiaty, and be sure to grab a copy of of it on ‘purple suspension’ vinyl from the evercool Ghostly International. Â Michael Cina hits another home run on the beautiful cover art.
