Nova Noma "Atlas" (bc016)
"Atlas" is the debut album from Glaswegian producer Nova Noma and what better way to showcase your musicianship than an array of sounds as pristine as this collection. It's a release that swirls and glides it way through chill out territory. Layers of rippling synths, fractured beats, glistening melodies and expertly placed electronic string arrangements. Throw in a selection of deftly used dialogue samples and guest vocals from Vena and you have all the ingredients for a simply majestic debut. "Atlas" is an album that demands your full attention from start to finish, from the prelude of the title track to the postlude closer of "Omega". The production skills and melodic know how on show from Nova Noma are practically flawless. Everything flows, everything fits. The tracklisting order has been set out to perfection and takes the listener on a dream like, upbeat journey. It's positive, thought provoking and uplifting chill out music. Tailor made for a warm summer evenings with your headphones.
The album can be streamed and DL below or at the Bricolage bandcamp page.
The download comes with a PDF booklet of beautiful individual artwork for each track.
