Boomkat product review for:

bvdub & ian hawgood - The Truth Hurts

Misty-eyed ambient session pairing two lost souls in a melancholy marriage of blissed-out electronica. BVdub should need little introduction, his sighing ambience is beloved by many, from dub Techno boys to drone drones, while Ian Hawgood is a busy guy responsible for the Home Normal, Nomadic Kids Republic and Tokyo Droning labels, besides productions under his own name and the Koen Park alias, among others. On 'The Truth Hurts' it's hard to distinguish who does what, but no mither, you'll probably be too busy lost in ambient space to be bothered. The first track features vocal layers a la Cocteau Twins, washing around a vast space and anchored with super wide subs. 'Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Pretender' is like sinking into a deep shagpile carpet face-first. 'Lie In Lone' attempts something more subtle with tender acoustic guitars before it's soon subsumed by 20+ minutes of wooly, standing-on-a-mountaintop ambient tone washes. Again, 'Your Grand Finale (A Theater Of One)' loses itself in 24 mins of cloudy beatless ambience. Lovely.
