On their launch last September, Australian label Analogue Attic promised to showcase "the gentle side of electronic music down under". They're as good as their word on this second release, which comes from Rory McPike under his Rings Around Saturn alias. Operating on a similar plane to the tactile, picturesque soundscapes of Lord of The Isles more spacey work, both "Erosion" and "Portion 22" offer dreamy chords, becalmed melodies and sparse, spaced-out rhythms. There are a few sly winks towards vintage ambient house throughout, particularly on "Gypsy Village", a luscious combination of liquid melodies and eyes-closed hypnotism. Label bosses Sean La'Brooy and Alex Albrecht go further towards vintage ambient territory on their sublime Bathtime Arrangement of "Portion 22".
