It's a remarkable gift, to be able to create emotional effects using entirely instrumental albums. From Kraftwerk to Durutti Column to today's crop of post-rock talents like Labradford and Yellow6 there have been a few artists who have managed to achieve this in the last few decades. Another worthy addition to that list is Vladislav Delay from Finland, who carves out dub masterpieces using a myriad of glitchy noise patterns. On first listen it may sound like a malfunction in a giant boiler room but perseverance is rewarded with some intensely moving soundscapes. There are some wonderful threads to each piece of music; the transition from the icy beats of 'Kohmeessa Alt.' to the dreamy open vistas of 'Ledi', neatly segueing on to the full-scale bliss-out of 'Kotilianen'. As if things can't get any better, 'Ontolla' takes the listener to the archetypal "floating in space" experience whilst 'Lolkakuu' is simply stunning. A sterling, stirring listen.
