this is one of the first albums from the whole lowercase bloom at the turn of the century that has stuck with me. obviously, there are others, but, y'know, you remember your first time...
motion - dust
now OOP. this album is almost all texture, and very quiet. it all just emerges. totally stunned me when I first heard it, uncomplicated design and execution. no overraching concept or theory about "why" this album is so (an academic approach that really flourished around the turn and is still in evidence today). while there is an obvious amount of simplicity in much of the material and construction of these tracks, there is also a great amount of care and measure - there is not too little, but what we hear is just enough.
