If ever an artist was appropriately named it would be Library Tapes, the chosen moniker for Swede David Wenngren. This is stately, unassuming music which walks the line between classical and experimental electronica.
The consistent elements running through the course of 'Höstluft' are the crackle of static, an ancient piano and the sounds of what appears to be a train station. The mood is reminiscent of an Agatha Christie dramatisation with the elegant murmurings suggesting an underlying danger. This being minimalism though, the danger never quite arrives. Nevertheless, the one-paced experience is lightened by some classy melody; 'Dis/Dagg/Dimma' and 'Skiss Av Träd' and 'Skiss Av Löv' are beautifully arranged melancholia. And by the time the train moves out for the last track, it's one of the most pleasant half an hour journey's anyone could have.
