As the day fades, darkness falls like a blanket covering the sky. It can take us back to our happy place, where we can find ease in a fast-moving world. It’s nighttime and the darkest time of the year. This is when stars align and dreams come true.
Sven Wunder returns to his happy place with two nocturnal winter themes played by piano and a small orchestra framed by a sparkling flute and celestial choirs.
This has become one of the most important albums of my life. It’s essence is indescribable. Every sound from the start of the record through the end is placed delicately and with care. The album cover is by Julie Mehretu. It’s absolutely an incredible release for which I shall be eternally grateful. Aniket
Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell
