Yume Bitsu Yume Bitsu

On this sophomore release by Portland, OR’s Yume Bitsu, they walk the tightrope between ambient drone and lilting space-rock, and creating some of the most beautiful, yet haunting music of the year. The album has a pretty even distribution of tracks with vocal and instrumental, although it must be noted the vocals are used in much the same manner groups such as SIANspheric or Mogwai use them. The music contained within is so absorbing and pleasing, I find myself drifting away unintentionally into a daydream. (Ba Da Bing!)
