heathered pearls - Loyal
Expansive, richly romantic ambient fare from Moodgadget co-founder and Brooklyn resident Jakub Alexander, making his full-length debut on Ghostly International as Heathered Pearls. A concerted attempt to create soothing audio environments "built on repetition, erosion and melody", Loyal isn't the most groundbreaking record we've heard this year, but it compensates in terms of sheer sonic loveliness. And while chiming, mellifluous, overtly utopian dronescapes are the going rate, there are some subtle shifts in register: 'Ringing Temple (Decreased Version)' uses ritualistic drums and arpeggios to induce a more ambiguous mode of meditation, and the dub-scoured 'Steady Veil' is a particularly meaty stand-out, summoning not only Wolfgang Voigt's GAS but also his brother Reinhardt's perennially underrated Sturm project.
