Vladislav Delay Quartet
Released: May 2011
Label: Honest Jon's Records
After testing his percussive mettle in the Moritz von Oswald Trio, Finland's ambient techno maestro Vladislav Delay parks himself behind the drums once again, this time to helm his own electro-acoustic improv outfit. Accompanied by bassist Derek Shirley, winds player Lucio Capece and Pan Sonic's Mika Vainio on electronics, Delay whips up a shimmering haze of frozen drones and almost incidental pulses. There's not much to grasp on to, but getting lost in this wilderness is a reward in its own right.
