Alex Reviriego - Leukolenos [Crystal Mine]

Released via the Spanish label that is Crystal Mine on January 26th, 2k23 is "Leukolenos", the latest full length tape album effort cooked up by Barcelona's Alex Reviriego. Rolled out over the course of a C48 cassette and a total of seven brand new tracks we see the Spaniard embarking on a journey into a sonic realm characterized both by droning, glacial Ambient athmospheres of a slowly progressing nature accompanied by floating, somewhat enchanted minimalist melodies as well as spatial experimentalisms reminiscent of early electronic music production studios - think of the legendary WDR Studio Für Elektronische Musik in Cologne etc. - whereas other cuts present a spacetime-defying, angelic take on Deep Listening Music and even brooding DarkAmbient which is especially prevalent in tunes like "Artemis" which, in its extended glory, evokes beloved memories of genre master pieces once created by Tarkatak, Scanner or even Christoph De Babalon and therefore turns out to be our favorite cut on this highly recommended, yet already sold out cassette tape album. Lovely.
