This is an absolute beauty. Kind of reminds me of nothing else in my collection. You could argue that if you appreciate Nils Frahm & Ben Frost you may be somewhere to understanding if its something thats for you, or not as the case may be. Personally if I am in the right head space its a lovely record to 'chill out' to.
