CBL “Twentythree”

I must admit I haven’t paid much attention to the output of Swedish duo Carbon Based Lifeforms because I found “World of Sleepers” not too different from their first album on Ultimae, but their fourth album “Twentythree” released in 2011 is quite different: almost beatless, ethereal ambient. Really beautiful. For starters, check out the hauntingly beautiful “Somewhere in Russia” (you have to give it a couple of minutes though, as is usual with ambient… this is not your 2 1/2 minute long dumbed down radio pop).

And 5 Euros (less than $7) for the download version probably qualifies as a steal.

Thoughts? Let me hear them.
