Boomkat Product Review:
Luke Abbott coins his Buffalo Temple label with the cracked serenity of 'Music For A Landscape'. His 3rd album, an original soundtrack to 'The Goob', also doubles up as a canny lead-on from 'Wysing Forest' (2014), pursuing that LP's sonic psychogeographic themes from Cambridgeshire to his home ends in Norfolk, also the location for filming of 'The Goob'. Incorporating richly scenic field recordings of insects provided by Chris Watson and Anna Bertmark (to be clear, they provided the sounds, not the insects), the albums gently unfolds with the slow, wide-open pacing of Partridge's Own Country (as nobody calls it), unfurling languorous analogue pads and fuzzy, off-kilter harmonics worthy of a BoC interlude. The dancefloor doesn't even come into question; it's a purely home-or-garden listen intended to fragrance your space and bring the outside in, or vice-versa, when experienced away from the film's visual content. It's gorgeous stuff, tactile, efficient, and never overbearing, as too much neo-classical/ambient can tend to be.
