Canada Effervescent: Crystalline tape

Denis Tremblay’s first Not Not Fun release is richly textured new age which starts out somewhat in the Laraaji/Alice Coltrane orbit, due to its harp-like sounds, but then it progresses into more liquid, cascading synth tones, as well as field recordings. Obviously this is the entire point, but this is really relaxing, healing music. But even with that description, it seems a bit more “other” than standard new age revival. None of the tracks sound alike, and they range from brief interludes to the 10-minute cyber-rainforest which ends the album.
