grand soundscapes & acutely detailed ambient compositions, seamlessly combining acoustic instruments with modular electronics & synths.

for ‘centralia’ the duo of koen holtkamp & brendon anderegg approached the album layer by layer, combining purely-acoustic recordings with purely-electronic sounds rather than using electronics to manipulate acoustic source material. guitar, cello, organs, electric piano & more interact with the electronic touches exquisitely, to create delicate pieces of flowing, pastoral ambience, defined by slow builds, subtle transformations & textures & melodic lines that evolve in a variety of ways. “mountains’ skilful manipulation of texture & space creates a sound that stealthily envelops you like an appalachian fog” 4/5 - uncut.
