Stunning ambient sounds from Seattle's Monadh. Muara is Jake Muir's debut album under the Monadh moniker, an aural excursion into glacial ambient soundscapes that transcend space and time. It's easy to get into an astral travel zone when listening to these vast and spacious frequencies as Muir delves deep into the "purest, most chillest" forms of rejuvenating textural ambience. The sound samples don't do justice as you really need to experience these tracks in their full length form - preferably at a loud, yet comfortable volume and in a horizontal position. From Monadh - "The way I make music is really stream of consciousness, my friend calls it 'slow improv." 7 tracks in all on limited edition 180 gram vinyl with digital download included. Anyone into into the ambient works of Brian Eno, Harold Budd, early Popol Vuh, etc. should definitely give this a listen.
