Boomkat Product Review:
Loscil's dreamy 2011 ambient classic "coast/ range/ arc/" gets the deluxe reissue treatment with a fresh remaster and an additional track.
Originally released in 2011, "coast/ range/ arc/" is a dense, evocative ambient record - the kind of album that set the stage for plenty of music that now clogs up playlists, but has rarely been done more effectively. Stylistic touchstones might be Thomas Köner, Angelo Badalamenti and Stars of the Lid (to a degree), but Scott Morgan takes things to shadowier, yet picturesque places - fitting, considering he is based in the quite lovely Pacific Northwest.
It's music that evokes its setting perfectly - bubbling streams haunt 'Fromme' before sub bass hints at larger, mountainous structures looming in the distance. 'Brohm Ridge' meanwhile sounds like troubling winds rushing through trees, with a haunted melancholy that reminds of Deaf Center at their finest. Unheard track 'Black Tusk Descent' has been added to fill out this reissue and concludes the album in a fitting mist of low-end drone and glassy anxious synth.
