Artist: Maps And Diagrams
Title: The Giant Woods
Label: Yuki Yaki
Catalog #: YKYK019
Release Date: 2009/12/12
It started out as a 4 track EP-isode and has finally grown into a fully-fledged album.
Maps And Diagrams’ latest strike on classical electronica is also his first release on Yuki Yaki, which marks a little beatless respite after a number of more rhythmic outputs recently. Warmly droning ambient-textures with plenty of endless space echo, like in the good old days, dominate the album.
Melancholy, contemplation and calm prevail – nicely wrapped in mysteriously shining soundscapes with a kiss of lo-fi noise. “The Giant Woods” seems to be rather predestined for the dark Winter days to come.
