Nathan Micay – A Razor’s Edge Requiem

The first track Nathan Micay ever finished was a jungle bootleg of Sufjan Stevens, so with credentials like that his place on this blog was pretty much assured before I’d heard even a bar of his new album The World I’m Going To Hell For. Happily, it’s absolutely brilliant, and A Razor’s Edge Requiem is an early highlight, blending Selected Ambient Works-era Aphex pads over thunderous broken beats and fizzing synth lines, before dissolving into a finale so moving it makes we want to spend the rest of the day listening to it on loop while gazing at little fluffy clouds.
