Rapoon – To West And Blue (2013)

Spooky, dark yet somewhat blissful and meandering ambient tunes are the order of the day. To say they don’t really go anywhere would possibly be a low blow – this is ambient music after all – but I can’t get rid of the nagging feeling that I’m listening to a boatload of build-up and then not much else. This is despite the mixed bag of different vibes and textures that Rapoon throws at us. However, I must admit the only track I actually really got into was the near-15-minute closing title track.

Rapoon has a long, loooong and prolific discography. Perhaps I just picked the wrong record to start.
