track of the week ~ 'time and space' ~ michael bell

Artist: Michael Bell
For fans of: Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky

There's a serene nostalgia to ambiant producer Michael Bell's music that feels as comforting as it is untracable. If Brian Eno's 'An Ending' conjures a tranquil image of the end of the world, then Bell's paints a similarly relaxing feel to universe which surrounds it.

The guitars here play the role of strings, quietly ebbing and flowing at peace with the rest of the music, never fighting for dominance. Meditative and self assured, you get the feeling that 'Time and Space' is simply the first step on a long musical journey for Michael Bell, who could follow in the footsteps of Oaks and Ryan Vail before too long.
