Eivind Aarset - Dream Logic (2012)
As you might expect, textures and atmospheres take precedence on these 11 tracks over formal song structures (the aptly named Black Silence being the most formless), but spindly, minimal melodies abound. The result is a gorgeous, immersive listening experience with lots of little production treats, like the little ghostly music-box melody that winds its way around the jittery jump-cuts of Jukai (Sea Of Trees), to name just one favourite. To name another, Homage To Greene is a tribute to Peter Green, with its gentle Albatross-esque melody, but Dream Logic is best experienced as a whole, to let all of its, well, dream logic wash right over you.
