Sunday listening: ‘Concrete Oceans’ from North Atlantic Drift

Sunday morning listening. This week it is North Atlantic Drift, an ambient music project from Mike Abercrombie & Brad Deschamps based in Toronto and who cite Brian Eno, Boards of Canada, and Stars of the Lid among their key influences.  This morning’s selection is ‘Concrete Oceans’ from their latest effort “Monuments” , which showcases what attracts me to their sound – lush ambient textures, glacial keyboards, and subtle, yet dramatic use of percussion.  Their debut album “Canvas”, released last year, is also highly recommended.
