Boomkat Product Review:
Soothing new age ambient healing music from Local Action’s most sensitive soul Yamaneko, returning to the frothy, melancholic charms of his imaginary soundtrack for a health spa
Beckoning listeners into an Egyptian cotton bathrobe mindset, the London-hailing producer offers a soundtrack for serene if forlorn states of mind as the album arcs from fantasy computer game stylings on ‘Flicker Like Jewels’ to brooding moments of Roger Eno-like ambient on ‘Armaine’s Song’, thru the massage parlour ambience of ‘Celestial Embrace’, to the lucid dreaming trance flight of ’Shaped Like Kaleidoscope’, and a fine nod to thee tastiest Belgian suds in ’Tripel Karmeliet’, with ‘Mt. Fløya Any’ recalling Nozomu Matsumoto’s eerily sweet strings and choral pads.
One to melt right into.
