It's been a while since the last release on waag ... and in this time James Hoehl has been busy creating a wonderfully dark and deeply atmospheric ambient album that sits effortlessly with the darker music that have come before it.
My love of atmospheric ambient music is well known and "A Dark Time" is a welcome addition to my personal rotation ... it is evocative and immersive, it entices me in with the opening track - "The Dream Stars" - and holds my attention to the closing of the fascinatingly titled and very vivid "Late 1980s Ultra Death Ray".
I am grateful to James for his faith in waag.
I am also grateful to Ian Borthwick whose piece, The Recovery, he kindly allowed for the cover art of "A Dark Time". Please check out his Instagram - @beattockboy - for regular inspiration.
As before, "A Dark Time" will be available for free over on Archive.org ... and for "pay what you want" on Bandcamp.
