Halou Wiser

Wow, this really couldn't be better timed. In a world gone somewhat mad, where each day brings a new evacuation, bomb hoax or missile crashing time zones away, we desperately need an escape from the paranoia, but an escape that doesn't feel crass. Don't worry, California couple Ryan and Rebecca Coseboom have put forth a release of languid beauty to wash the war away. Flowing at you in waves, Wiser presents soft, soothing, old-fashioned vocals with abstract beats, electronic spasms and the heart-piercing wail of a cello. Sad? Exhausted? Burned out? Lie down and listen to this. (Nettwerk)
