Xurba :: Haze de Absentia Dulciora (Electric Studios)

Here we have selected ambient works—panoramas spanning across arid landscapes. Shaping trance-induced sonic windows, Haze de Absentia Dulciora soars at a cruising altitude of 37,000-ft.

Xurba (aka the UK’s Will Brazier-Smith) returns with Haze de Absentia Dulciora on his own Electric Studios imprint. Where once lived nostalgia and heartfelt glee, previous albums delved into distant Boards of Canada-inspired kaleidoscope melodies and eroded beatwork. Here we have selected ambient works—panoramas spanning across arid landscapes. Calm, elusive and soundtrack driven, Xurba steers from percussion, and instead reveals a bustling, sometimes glittering atmospheric buzz. Each piece a storyboard, layers upon layers of elongated melodies break through slowly—Xurba has slightly switched gears from past offerings. Without focusing on any particular track, it’s important to note that each one flows through a winding, elevated path, discovering along the way subtle beauty in its relaxed construct. Shaping trance-induced sonic windows, Haze de Absentia Dulciora soars at a cruising altitude of 37,000-ft.
