Boomkat Product Review:
Lovely, fluffy ambient house from Canada's Cloudface for Opal Tapes, fronting his first new material in over a year. Since his in-demand 'Devonian Garden' 12" for Mood Hut in 2013, Cloudface's 'Wyre Drive' cassette for Nice Up International was reissued by London label Going Good, which have both rightfully earned him something of a cult status in the lo-fi house quarters. His 'Untitled' effort for Black Opal is arguably one of the label's sweetest releases since those early 1991 and Huerco S tape joints. Its seven tracks are naturally blessed with a sort of synthetic serenity that could only come from colder, Northerly regions; the kind of cockle-warming niceness that melts all but the most granite hearts. It's simply a must for fans of Pye Corner Audio, early AFX, 1991, Huerco S.
