**Includes digital download redeemable from the label** Further Records co-boss Chloe Harris presents her excellent 2nd solo album of ambient synth drone. On 'Dose' she conducts herself with minimal, uncluttered elegance over eight neatly constructed tracks. Compared with the spooling tendencies of many in the neo-kosmische realm, Reica's pieces are more buttoned up, like bubbling oddities made in a micro-brewery for those with more esoteric tastes. There's still a definite new age tendency, but one reined-in by a DJ's sense of timing and a personal, tactile feel for ambient pop sweetness that displays … Read more
