Tsone – At Last, The Splintering Light

March 20, 2012

This is a beautiful record. Not much happens, but that’s why it’s so good. It’s the sort of record you could put on and feel instantly relaxed while listening to it. I feel that it would be perfectly suited to a slow but vivid dream in a sparse wilderness, full of emptiness yet still beautiful.

While never going louder a slight murmur, the real attraction lies in the way the music flows. Never bothering to go in a different direction and never really needing to.  It’s easy to just ignore it. But if you put your mind, and ears, to it you will easily get some pleasure. I have been informed that Tsone is Tony Obr from Phoenix, Arizona. There’s not a lot of information out there, but this ambiguity certainly fits the music.

More of his music in on Bandcamp. It’s well worth a listen.

It’s out now on Dark Era Tapes, a lovely little DIY cassette label putting out ambient/minimalist records. Check them out.
