Date Palms ‘Honey Devash’ LP

Two tracks of sublime instrumental ambient, each taking up a record side. Soulful, forbidding ragas of modernist landscaping. Just enough primitive zoning to keep it from feeling electronic but no dismissable guitar noodling to wreck the space either. On reflection, I thought Date Palms managed the one crucial thing needed to pull this off; patience. The record starts off right in the mantra, but everything is allowed to stretch out and build. Georgeous drones float past. Deep plucked tones keep millenial time. The sun moves across the sky. Sand shifts then night falls. Amazing, a must have for anyone that liked O Yuki Conjugate or the more organic Tangerine Dream such as Rubycon or Tangram.
