Boomkat product review for:

various / kompakt - Pop Ambient 2009

Back in stock. This year's Pop Ambient pulls together quite a lineup - Tim Hecker, Sylvain Chauveau, The Fun Years, Klimek, Mint (aka Wolfgang Voigt!), Marsen Jules and Andrew Thomas to name just some of the 12 artists featured. Bringing the compilation to a predictably lovely start is Klimek, whose 'True Enemies & False Friends (Yesteryears Suite)' stitches together orchestral loops in a grandiose fashion reminiscent of Ekkehard Ehlers' epic 'Plays John Cassavetes'. Approaching classical instrumentation without the digital scalpel, Sylvain Chauveau arrives, slotting in beautifully among the likes of Mint, aka Wolfgang Voigt's broodingly atmospheric 'Hindemith' and Marsen Jules' Neil Young-referencing 'It's Only Castles Burning' which is another absolute treasure from this always absorbing artist. The Tim Hecker contribution inevitably turns out to be a highlight, setting off with what sounds like a piano recital caught in a typhoon and evolving into vast, distorted clouds of melodic noise, but the likes of Andrew Thomas, supplying the more purely electronic outings don't disappoint, and 'A Dream Of A Spider' might just be the most immersive thing here. The finest instalment in a while and another beautiful addition to what is already a fine, shimmering series. Highly recommended.
