Amp - Entangled Time [Sound In Silence 060]

Released via the Greek Ambient staple Sound In Silence on January 18th, 2k19 is ""Entangled Time", the second album outing created by the 1992 formed project Amp for the label. Founded by Richard F. Walker a.k.a. Richard Amp and operating as a duo consisting of its founder and London-based Karine Charff we see Amp catering a menu of five brand new tracks, opening with the 10+ minutes cut named "Drifting", a wonderful, elegic composition somewhat in between panoramic Ambient and echoes of score'esque (Neo)Classical string arrangements before slowly fading into the washed out sound of crashing waves at the very end of the tune followed by "Will-Oh Dreams" which combines drifting Ambient pad structures, brutal, partly reverberating background beats and dreamy, blurred vocals to create a fascinating lullaby for Industrial headz. Within the short "Playing Time" Amp is exploring timeless, ever pulsating and dubbed out dream states, "Opal Tears"brings forth a shoegazing take on beauteous, autumnal Post-PostRock and the concluding "Will-Oh Dreams (Extended Mix)" presents an alternative, yet not less drifting variation of the original cut, weighing in additional layers of low frequency PostRock chords and an extended playtime of 16+ minutes for all fans of Deep Listening Music. Great stuff. Check.
