Following on from the success of last year’s Hidden Landscapes compilation, Audio Gourmet have teamed together with Hibernate again to present a second edition. This year’s follow up includes an astonishing roster of artists from across the globe, which cross-sections the modern scene. The album is set up to carefully explore this, with guitar based openers from Marsen Jules and Talvihorros onto more modern classical material from Midori Hirano, Danny Norbury, The Frozen Vaults, Rudi Arapahoe and Federico Durand. The second half of the album opens out to more subtle drone works from Quinn Walker, Pawn, Lawrence English, Field Rotation, Pjusk and Offthesky before closing with a hint of noise by Konntinent, Strom Noir and Ian Hawgood.
Distribution in Japan by the lovely p*dis.
