    Double CD of minimal lengthiness from Spiracle on Ananta. Disc one is quite ecstatic with its slow and syrupy minimal droning creating a mood which dare not disturb the tranquil summer airs. Disc two seems to repeat the same sonic underlay while layering something far more gritty and urban on top of it, much like a space rocket taking off in incredibly slow motion. This is the work of Japanese composer Hitoshi Kojo, and has something to do with the artist's rather grave insomnia problem. If you have ever greeted the rosy dawn through grit-filled eyelids and found your mind racing with unlikely ideas, this collection will not only appeal to you, it may even act as a balm -- Ed Pinsent
