Loyal by Heathered Pearls
Released: Dec 2012
Label: Ghostly International
As synaesthetic aliases go, it's hard to beat Heathered Pearls, Jakub Alexander's opalescent, texturally obsessed ambient project for Ghostly. His beatless loops of synthesizer and found sound have a matte, static feel at first, but the longer you let them play out, the more the details come to life. Brian Eno is an obvious influence, and so are the rich, electro-acoustic sounds of Loscil and Markus Guentner, who both contribute remixes. The best kind of background music, it colors the environment around you; it requires little in terms of engagement, but rewards handsomely.
