David Granström - Empty Room [Hallow Ground Promo]

Scheduled for release via the mighty label that is Hallow Ground is "Empty Room", the latest five tracks and 40 minutes spanning album outing created by Swedish composer David Granström. Created throughout his residency at the infamous defunct iron ore mine known as Ställbergs Gruva Granström blends dreamy, floating and all comforting, slow moving guitar manipulations with his trademark take on droning Ambient cascades which are sporting a slightly (Neo)Cosmic / Berlin School / Synth twist in the almost celebratory opening tune that is "Obsidian" whereas the tender, brittle tonal explorations of the subsequent follow-up "Aeon" evoke memories of works by producer / guitarist Fennesz and the likes of. Furthermore "Sapphire Visions" indulge in an inward-looking take on Post-PostRock for fans of acts like Klimek or the Cologne-centered PopAmbient genre, "Occultations" weigh in super scenic, harmonic Synth Ambient movements for beauteous sunsets whereas the final cut that is "Transience" provides a twangy, minimal variation of Space PostRock in combination with spatial, slow and reverberating beats for an almost Pink Floyd'esque closing. Deep. Calm. Relaxed.
