Thore Pfeiffer: Im Blickfield

Thore Pfeiffer: Im Blickfield

This one almost passed me by this year, but I’m glad I got a copy before the year ended because it’s pretty astonishing. I’m seriously glad that Kompakt decided to start a series of Pop Ambient artist albums this year, as the compilation series is reliably excellent, and the label’s more ambient-leaning releases are usually the best things on the label. This album’s looping ambient pieces are understated but still kind of surreal and trippy. There’s something cut-up and sophisticated about it, but it’s still relaxed and soothing. He seems to utilize a lot of strange electro-acoustic textures, but packaged into accessible, shimmering pieces which are easy to get into. Simply stunning, one of the year’s best ambient albums.
