Here's a new one from Resting Bell - 'Polar living' by Lost Lanterns. This is the project of Ian Hawgood from UK and Ben Jones, who's living in Tokyo. They once met at university and worked together in different bands, now teamed up to work alone on their music using live instrumentation, field recordings and computers.
On 'Polar living', their first collaboration work, they use lots of field recordings which were recorded entirely in the UK countryside during autumn/winter time came and combined them with melodic keyboards. 'Warm keyboard drones are packing you in a safe cocoon, while the field recording-snippets have something mysterious and unknown...' A very quiet sweet ambient release for long winter nights...
