Steve Roden - Stars Of Ice [Room 40 Promo]

Scheduled for release on the Australian label that is Room 40 on February 4th, 2k22 is "Stars Of Ice", a slightly extended re-release of Lowercase pioneer Steve Roden's album of the same name which originally was put on the circuit via New Plastic Music as a limited to 250 copies CD-r back in 2008. This years version, which features the original composition alongside a roughly seven minutes spanning excerpt and marks the beginning of an extensive collaboration between the LA-based composer and Room40, once again emphasizes the beauty of a slightly washed out, ever repeating harmonic loops sequence in combination with crackly surface noise as well as looped vocals in reverse, improvisationally plucked strings of what probably is a ukulele and other slightly reprocessed goodness, all slowly fading in and out of eachother over the course of roughly 34 minutes, creating a time-defying field of comforting warmth and ambience that makes one feel at home whereever one might be listening to this album. Therefore recommended. Check.
