Aidan Baker & Gareth Davis - Invisible Cities II [Karlrecords Promo]

Scheduled for release via Karlrecords on January 24th, 2k20 is "Invisible Cities II", the second full album collaboration album created by Canadian guitarist Aidan Baker and Belgium-based clarinet player Gareth Davis. Presenting a new set of five tracks rolled out over the course of roughly 43 minutes playtime the opening cut "Hidden" sonically paves the way for things to come with its dark'ish, solemn and slowly moving Ambient structures as well as score'esque overall approach and layers of unperturbed, naturalistic beauty fading out into atmospheric crackles whilst the subsequent track "Eyes" weighs in more of a brittle take on late night / early morning Ambient vibe for those indulging in deep thinking and heartfelt melancholia. Approaching "The Dead" we see the duo merging more of a brooding, threatening electronic vibe with Dark Jazz-informed, yearning clarinet motifs, finding "Continuity" equals the calm in the golden hour before the sun rises whereas naming concluding "Names" is as tender and romantic as Ambient music can get. Defo one for genre connaisseurs, this.
