Four years of slow-burning success, on from the rolling primal rhythms and joyous arpeggios of his 2010 debut Holkham Drones (BCR 030CD/LP), Luke Abbott makes a bold return with his sublime second album offering, Wysing Forest. Comprising a series of improvised live recordings compiled into one rapturous movement and hallmarked by the majestic elegiac pastorals of the two-part "Amphis" theme, this is most definitely an album which is greater than the sum of its parts, designed to be listened to in one immersive go. Although only a pair of tracks -- "Free Migration" and "Highrise" -- approach the idiosyncratic lumpen danceability of Holkham Drones, it is thanks to Luke's perfectly-judged elegant transitional dynamics that neither piece feels out of place amongst the album's more mellow moments.
