Ocoeur: Inner

French electronic artist Ocoeur’s fifth album is a set of wintry, minimalist ambient/IDM mainly consisting of blanket-like synths, although there’s also some piano, cello, and perhaps gongs buried underneath. It’s deep and melancholy, but it can also be relaxing. “Passage” is a mild shot of adrenaline, thanks to some flickering IDM beats, while more ambient tracks like “Mother” and “Unseen” slightly recall Vangelis at his most precious. “Echo” brings back the sculpted-static beats, then “Shelter” is a soft, comforting conclusion.
