BVDUB | Drowning in Daylight (Apollo) – 2xLP
Apollo welcomes ambient legend bvdub aka San Franciscan Brock Van Wey for a new album Drowning in Daylight.
Classically trained in piano and violin as a child, Van Wey’s symphonic approach to ambience is truly remarkable.
Epic in its scale with each of it’s 4 tracks clocking in around the 20 minute mark, Drowning In Daylight envelops the listener in swathes of nostalgic pads and nested layers of distortion, strings and haunted voices.
Drowning In Daylight could well be Van Wey’s crowning achievement to date and a testament to the power of instrumental abstract music to emotionally engulf the listener.
