Library Tapes - A Summer Beneath the Trees

This year hasn't been too exiting for the ambient genre, but I've come across a few hits. This particular release often leaves me confused from track to track. Many tracks are accompanied by a violin, giving off a dreary orchestral sound (much like Esmerine/Set Fire to Flames). Other tracks are doodles on the piano, showing influences from Max Richter and the early ambient Eno recordings. Fans of Hammock and Windy & Carl would definitely follow this album well because it has a really droned out dramatic tone.
