Boomkat product review for:

offthesky vs. kinder scout - The Curio Collection

Dusty neo-classical/ambient exhalations from Jason Corder (Offthesky) in trio with cellist Danny Norbury and Home Normal's intercontinental CEO, Ian Hawgood (Kinder Scout). The central figures are joined by vocalist/violinist Sarah Chung, and vocalist Sarah Martin to complete the line-up of ambient souls. Across six tracks they paint a slow moving and faded soundscape glowing with the soft peal of bells, creaking strings and crackling location recordings which mingle and diffuse with tender subtlety, the focus given to a blurry mid-ground while a shifting patina of vocal glossolalia and drones lend a dreamy momentum to the whole thing.
