More great, grim, gorgeous drones from Ian Boddy, as expansive as the night sky. Boddy is a minimalist, so his tracks aren't cluttered with streaks of sound or busy blipping — just broad, soothing bands of sound that are evocative and mysterious. There's something distinctly unsettling abotu Boddy's music, as if hidden deep in the shadows of his songs are spirits waiting to be loosed. Elemental is another fascinating journey into Boddy's heart of darkness.
