Fredrik Rasten - Lineaments [Sofa Music]

Released via the ever active Norwegian imprint Sofa Music on June 16th, 2k23 is "Lineaments", the latest album by guitar player x composer x improviser Fredrik Rasten who caters two long form pieces - aptly and subsequently named "Lineament I" and "Lineament II" - spread out over a total runtime of roughly 43 minutes on this one. Following the concept of building deeply chill and relaxing pieces off of a foundation of repetetive, yet ever slightly meandering and evolving plucked guitar motifs layered with droning sinewaves and electronic overtones, at times even tender non-vocalisms, Fredrik Rasten creates an all embracing, organic, dreamy and highly comforting stream of sound which will surely and deeply resonate with all dedicated collectors of time-dissolving ChillOut, PopAmbient and Post-PostRock related music out there. Beautiful like an extended walk through open meadows on a warm summer evening. Go check.
