AAR002, the second release from Analogue Attic comes from Melbourne local, Rory McPike under his Rings Around Saturn alias. Operating on a similar plane to the tactile, picturesque soundscapes of Lord of The Isles more spacey work, both "Erosion" and "Portion 22" offer dreamy chords, becalmed melodies and sparse, spaced-out rhythms. There are a few sly winks towards vintage ambient house throughout, particularly on "Gipsy Village", a luscious combination of liquid melodies and eyes-closed hypnotism.
Label bosses Sean La'Brooy and Alex Albrecht go further towards vintage ambient territory on their Bathtime Arrangement of "Portion 22".
