Emeralds - Up In The Air

This Cleveland trio's carpety grandeur shimmers at it's most cosmic on their new full length. They've taken a slightly different approach to this than they did for the multitude of cassettes they've released; it's less improvised than before and the results are much more direct, this full and opaque sort of ambient that somehow always attains some genuine humanist sort of feel. Even if it's true that you may listen to this post duboire and be all like '...woah' but it's no mean feat to carve such transcendence with gritty ambitions. Dusty space odysseys that waver and meander in quietly unpredictable ways.
