Sam Willis | Winterval | Half Machine Records | 2012 |
Sam Willis, known also from his releases on Kompakt as Walls, deserves more recognition for this album. Not only because first 500 copies of this LP are Cadmium red exquisitely crafted vinyl. Above all this is a consummate electronic soundscape, house and ambient textures executed with a keen sense of understatement, most amazingly showcased on the 8-minute-long title track. A sublime cover image makes it a gem from below the radar.
