021/100 - “Earthlight” by Horizon Fire
“Earthlight” by Manchester-based artist Horizon Fire is a Sunday afternoon kind of album, seriously mellow with deliciously warm synths and languid rhythms that lull you into a fuzzy dream state. Think Boards of Canada but without their trademark glitchiness or a slower Ulrich Schnauss and you will get the gist.
If you need an album to help you chill out, this is it: “Earthlight” is a melodic downtempo delight from the start of “Asimov” to final refrain of the title track “Earthlight”. It is rare to find an album with this level of consistency.
