Boomkat Product Review:
Vancouver's Scott Morgan made his name with a series of brilliant ambient long-players for Kranky, but now moves over to Ghostly for a short but very sweet EP of loop-based beatless compositions. 'Strathcona' is a brilliant return for Morgan, charting a micro-melodic, minimalist structure that brings to mind works like Taylor Deupree's Stil. or the more recent works from Biosphere. Using just two chords, Morgan stirs up a glorious sound world that builds up to orchestral proportions, filtering its way through deceptively simple passages that lead towards a 'Union Dusk' - a sequel of sorts that takes the same essential ingredients, adding xylophone melodies and a more rigid sense of rhythm before 'Midnight On Princess' dismantles the momentum, opting for a more mysterious and altogether cinematic drone-based soundscape. Good stuff, this.
