Sam Prekop, John McEntire – Ascending By Night

Ascending By Night is taken from the debut collaborative album from Sam Prekop (The Sea and Cake) and John McEntire (Tortoise), but given how excellent is it I think they should probably commit to at least half a dozen more. With four sprawling electronic compositions clocking in at just under an hour, Sons Of gives allows of its tracks the time to develop; to morph from one thing to another, with tonal shifts from dark to light and back again a common theme. Beautiful, patiently handled and exquisitely crafted.
