Look out the window… Actually don’t bother, it’s hopeless. No fear, we’ve got something that will help ease your passage into the start of the week and heaven knows you probably need a little lubrication on this freezing January morning. This is the video premiere for the exquisite tone poem “Deutz Air 2” from PopNoName’s Jens-Uwe Beyer, taken from Pop Ambient 2013, the latest instalment in Kompakt‘s long-running series released today. The video compliments the glacial drifts of organ pad with its time-lapse photography and rich, wheeling colors. Monday blues? January depression? Both begone! What’s more, this year sees the 20th year of Kompakt’s existence, so stay tuned for features which celebrate this milestone forthcoming on EB soon.
