Madeleine Cocolas - Spectral [Room40 Promo]

Another fresh one put out on the circuit via the Ambient staple that is Room40 on July 15th, 2k22 is "Spectral", the first ever album recorded for the label by Australian producer Madeleine Cocolas. Rolled out over a total of eight pieces and roughly 41 minutes playtime Cocolas explores a world of timeless, calm and beautifully washed out Ambient goodness from the very first moments of the opener "A Memory, Blown Out" onwards, adds tender, deeply melancholic piano swells to the mix with pieces like the caressing, well emotional "Presence" whilst bits like "Northern Storm" perfectly represents the tension of a looming natural disaster, yet presents a feel of revelation and relief throughout its sonic evolution as a tune, "And Then I Watch It Fall Apart" touches base with an intimate, hyperdreamy (Neo)Classical x score'esque feel for rainy October afternoons whereas the closing piece "Rip" even dabbles with a folksy, inward-looking guitar motif that might well function as a gateway to the sweetest of dreams just to name a few. One to check out for all Ambient x ChillOut collectors out there.
