Unwed Sailor CD EP review [Burnt Toast]

UNWED SAILOR Circles (Dig) CD EP
This is the stuff that I rarely seem to get tired of: texturally sweeping ethereal soundscapes in the vein of sound-shapists like Insides, Scenic, Jeff Greinke and even Lull. Introspection and melancholy are part and parcel of this EP, and while Unwed Sailor bumps against the dark-ambient genre, there is an organic quality that creates just enough distance to keep it from being pigeonholed.
Circles is comprised of two compositions: “Circles I: Mist” and “Circles II: Mesa,” and is—if anything—too short. Music like this is meant to envelop you and take you into more meditative places, but by the time I found myself in that “other world,” the record was already over and I wasn't ready for the date to end. Nice stuff—ideal for contemplative states and late nights. [Burnt Toast Vinyl]
