Prompted by the recent Oto No Wa release from Music for Dreams, I was reminded of this awesome release from Light in the Attic of 80’s and 90’s ambient from Japan. It’s another stunning package,complied by Spencer Doran of Visible Cloaks. In a beautiful 3 x vinyl package and digital too, some sublime music here for headphone immersion and horizontal exploration.
