Album Review: Marconi Union- Signals

In an increasingly chaotic world, the need to find some kind of respite is important. Ambient music has always provided a way in, and so it is with enigmatic Manchester artist Marconi Union.

Signals, their thirteenth album, is a seductive and moody proposition. Cycles Repeat sounds like Ry Cooder jamming with Gold Panda (imagine) and Blowback is as hypnotic and stoned sounding as the title would infer.

There are no clichés here- just spacious and futuristic ambient music with as many moods and textures as you need, when it all gets too much. Inspired by Krautrock rhythms, the spirit of experimentation reaps rewards.
