RIYL: Fennesz, Brian Eno, Ben Frost, Daniel Lopatin
For 15 years, Tim Hecker has been shaping his own unique vessel in the ambient electronic world, constructing neo-classical loops and phrases and mixing them with abstract layers of field recordings and experimental noise. ¬†His tracks will often build to crushing depths but never feel too overwhelming, throwing sublime piano strikes into the mix to help keep your head above¬†ground.
Fans of Fennesz’s 2008 ambient noise masterpiece Black Sea and Brian Eno’s expansive ambient catalog should look no further than Tim Hecker, who has worked with other genre-defying artists like Canadian¬†multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and glitchy collagist Oneohtrix Point Never.
As of now, there are no sound clips to preview, but check out Hecker’s 2013 full-length Virgins below to get a taste for what’s to come. ¬†4AD has 500 clear vinyl LPs up for preorder as of now, so hike your way over to the ‘buy’ button and get some sublime ambient music in your life.

Nowadays, music too frequently resembles a product, or white noise. With a career spanning fifteen years, Tim Hecker belongs to a select camp actively resisting this undertow, this reduction in significance.
