Record Label: Ipecac Recordings
At its core Dolores is a dark and brooding jazz alum infused with elements of ambient and electronic music. Moving at a slow and purposeful pace, the music has a simple yet elegant beauty. The songs are well-crafted and subtly complex.
This album is one of the more surprising pleasures I’ve listened to this year. My opinion is jaded by too many ambient albums that have nothing really substantial to offer. I started off thinking that this was going to take me nowhere, but ended up completely immersed.
This is a great album to listen to while sitting on a leather chair in a darkened room and drinking a glass of single malt… if you’re into that sort of thing. Or you can just find a nice place where you can absorb the compositions undisturbed. The music hangs in the air like smoke that is waiting to enlighten you, or to snuff you out.
