Possibly the most beautiful entry in an overwhelmingly beautiful canon, 'Ornitheology' is prime Chubby Wolf: nearly 90 minutes of ethereal drift, parceled into two generously portioned tracks that caress ears and spirits.
Favorite track: On Burnt, Gauzed Wings.
pure essence of travel. transitioning from crowds in public centres to extended dream sequences reminiscent of watching everything pass by, looking out the window of a train. everything flows perfectly and each overlapping moment complements another.
i first listened to this in may, during a trip in rural quebec. i played it every day while driving by towering rock structures and minuscule, isolated communities. i still listen almost every day now as well.
best album of the year by far ethan van iderstine
