Balmorhea - Pendant World

Genre: Contemporary Classical
Country: US

Final Verdict: 69% (Good Album)
Yearly Ranking: 65th / 540

Highlight: New Conditions

Made me think of:
Olafur Arnalds
Nils Frahm
A Winged Victory for the Sullen


This modern classical release is filled with interesting plodding melodies and a light and jazzy atmosphere to contrast. I found the swirling piano helped set the tone of the album, and Sam Gendel's warbled saxophone additions were perfect! I particularly enjoyed 'Step Step Step' and 'Desiderium'.
