Thanks to @mrmerle for recommending another fantastic record.

I don't understand how a record this gorgeous flies over the radar.

I adore Hundred Waters' sound; it's a mixture of melancholic, atmospheric, elegance and pain.

The atmosphere is haunting and raw, with it's elements of folk music being given a new lease of life as H.W. blend it together with Art Pop, a genre I have lots of admiration for.

Another highlight is the consistency, which this record never lets down the entire time.
You're left feeling you're levitating through a whirlwind of emotion that's rife with quiet tension and feelings of desperation.
There's a strong haunting theatrical touch to how this album sounds as a result of this.

I love the diverse production choices as well: one minute you can have tracks like Cavity and Chambers (Passing Train) that are dark and linger under your skin, other times you get unpredictable tracks like [Animal] which spruce you up with positive vibes.

I'm finally happy I got to experience this as it just demonstrates a consistent journey of emotion that never feels dull or undermined in its atmospheric world.

Prepare to be haunted for a while after you hear this.
