Now entering its seventh year, Dutch label Field Records continues to focus on great album projects. After a triple 12" compilation in 2014, and ahead of a third album in the coming months, now comes a 12 track opus, In The Wake Of The Dark Earth, by D.A.R.F.D.H.S. aka Swedish pair Michel Isorinne and Jonas Ronnberg. Between them, Isorinne and Ronnberg record under a number of different aliases and have done so for the last couple of years on labels like Opal Tapes and Northern Electronics. Their sound veers from foggy, experimental stuff to icy techno via deep acid, and produced a first album this time last year on Clan Destine Records.
This new album is one for headphones or home listening, for lonely winter nights or long night time journeys. It's an absorbing ambient affair weighed down by a heavy sense of atmosphere. At times shadowy and eerie, at others cautiously optimistic, the perfectly crafted spaces within all invite you to get lost and completely forget the outside world. Arriving with enigmatic artwork in both digital and vinyl format, modern ambient never sounded better.
