Visible Cloaks - Reassemblage

I see that this got a good rating on pitchfork, not that that matters to most, but it really is quite a good album. I've purchased about half of the tracks so far, and I think I'm going to spring for the physical release, as it's one of few 2017 albums that are worth it at this point.

Pitchfork struggles with genres, specifically the need to abide by genre "rules," which is why they describe this as ambient. I would not, as there are definite melodic and harmonic structures to the songs, which are repeated, and there are percussive elements that provide cohesion to isolated ideas within tracks. This is really not ambient music.

It also not wholly electronic, but it's fucking good!

Listen to "Bloodstream" and "Mask". These are my picks at the moment.
