New Rome: Nowhere

New Rome: Nowhere

This one almost completely escaped by notice, which is bizarre considering I usually get promos of almost everything Room40 releases, but I stumbled upon it late and now it’s my favorite ambient album of the year. Cloudlike and billowing, but it always has a definite direction that it’s floating in. A few tracks like “Beginning” stop just shy of having actual beats, but the tempos can still be measures in BPMs. Overall, it just sounds incredibly hopeful, not to mention supremely relaxing. Basically, this album is like that Huerco S. album that came out earlier this year, except that album is getting tons of (well deserved) hype and this one isn’t getting any.
