One half of Mint Julep and sole member of Helios, Keith Kenniff is no stranger to the world of ambient, post rock and modern classical music. Since 2001, Kenniff releases new work and tours the globe on a regular basis, with good reason too. He is one of those artists that can set the mood with only a touch on the keys. That is what he does on 'Occasus', the new Goldmund album, set to be released in April. With a minimal sound, balancing between classical music and electronic ambient, Kenniff gently turns your room into that old jazz club and I couldn't be happier about it.
'Occasus' contains fifteen tracks, all following the path of piano melodies and minimal ambient soundscapes. In that aspect, it is probably safe to say that Goldmund sails the same vast but calm waters as Olafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen and Max Richter. My favorite tracks here are 'Breaking', 'Circle' and the breathtaking ambient piece 'Terrarium' but I'm sure every fan of dreamy ambient can easily appreciate this. So, without further ado, I think it's time for you to go over to Goldmund's bandcamp page and pre-order this album. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
