sam prekop, sam mcentire – sons of

‘Sons Of’ would look magnificent over anything from shuffling film of microscopic plant cells to stock footage of a helicopter drifting through the Tokyo skyline. It corresponds gracefully to all forms of experience, material or immaterial, with an understanding glow. In doing so, it implies a nature to dance and a dance to nature. There’s also a gentleness with which the electronic hi-hats and kick drums guide the melodic lines towards an endless river that will eventually feed back into itself. This is an album to fawn over. Like the most graceful ambient records, ‘Sons Of’ feels philosophically nourishing while being present and life-affirming.
