Hakobune: Love Knows Where tape

Hakobune: Love Knows Where tape

Impossibly serene ambient. Like Kyle Bobby Dunn, this guy isn’t reinventing the wheel at all, but he’s incredibly good at what he does, so it’s not hard to see why he’s so beloved. KBD is fairly prolific, often releasing multi-disc albums, but Hakobune is too prolific to keep up with, with over 50 releases listed on Discogs, not including collaborations/side projects. The three pieces on this album are calm and engrossing, but get gradually darker, playing out like a transition from day to evening to night. “Rapids” is the more soothing A-side, “Curtains Far Seen” is like a gorgeous sunset, and the title track is like a cloudy (but not stormy), slightly chilly night. Absolutely perfect for the turning-into-fall weather right now.
