Les Halles – Invisible Cities

Named after the 1972 book by Italo CalvinoInvisible Cities by the French musician, head of the Carpi Records label and graphic designer Baptiste Les Halles brings back the best of the woozy, lo-fi New Age ambience somewhere between Werner Herzog film soundtracks and the narcoleptic soundscapes of Dolphins Into the Future. Gentle flute (or synth? but who cares actually?) melodies shimmer among the tape hiss, emerging and disintegrating in the washes of early Popol Vuh-like bliss. It’s one of those timeless albums, which could be released at almost anytime and still sound just as mysterious and dislocated as ever. Recommended!
