“Don’t Get Any Closer” - Eluvium
I haven’t much to say on this most tranquil of tracks. “Back to basics” comments, career recaps of ambient talent Matthew Cooper, all have been made already today. This delicate nine-minute piece is simple in structure, with gorgeous results. Plaintive piano overlaps subtle, shifting drone pieces to maximal hypnotic effect.
This is the first single of the Nightmare Ending, a double album to be released May 14th via Temporary Residence Ltd. The aptness of the title, the potential for bad puns relating it to the song title, are so easy that not even I dare touch them. Don’t mind that, though - just listen.
By the way, Jeannie Lynn Paske - that is some nice artwork indeed.
