Cat: AKR 137LPC1. Rel: 30 Mar 20
Back in 2008, Asthmatic Kitty released Lowell Brams debut album, "Music For Insomnia" as part of their "Library Catalog Music" series of instrumental sets. While nominally a solo set, it was in fact co-produced by Brams' stepson, Sufjan Stevens. 12 years on, the pair has decided to join forces once more to deliver another set of emotive, evocative instrumentals. With its stirring synthesized strings, swooping cinematic themes, bold synth melodies, bubbly electronic beats and atmospheric chords, "Aporia" sounds like library music composed to soundtrack grandiose films that had yet to be made. It's lo-fi in tone, but epic in scale. More importantly, the collected compositions - some of which are ambient interludes - are hugely enjoyable.
