Simply lovely. Thanks!
A deeply, darkly ambient mix by sylvan-eared Coppice. First in a series inspired by lost corners of forest and parkland in London
This is a welcoming mix, as satisfying as a warm mug of deep bass and crystalline sounds after a long day lolloping over the fields and through the trees of North London. It opens and ends with classic Brian Eno tracks, extending over a broad sweep of ambience that takes in its path the breathy holds of Stars of the Lid and Coil's dense chemically inspired transcription. Room is made for the inclusion of classic synth sounds from Vangelis, as well as the very modern artistry of Burial and attenuated swoops of COH. So get out and enjoy some fresh air, then get cosy and listen to this one.
Coppice enjoys trees, air, and wild places, when not spending time in front of screens or speakers.
