Rob Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Om, 90 Day Men) swiftly proceeds his stunning 'Timon Irnok Manta' side for Type with a humbling, stripped down suite crafted almost entirely from his own vocals, subtly layered with some synth work. 'Lítió Fólk' feels at once vast and intimate: Lowe's vocals resonate deeply, instinctively - quavering notes and curling overtones centre the sound within the body - while the layered and sustained drone structure seems to draw the spirit ever outwards, drawing enchanting melodies into pale-hued and chamber-like harmonic space traversing pastoral scapes, heavy-hearted kosmiche and sincerely epic space drone. We'd liken (sorry!) this sound mostly with female artists - thinking Grouper, MSOTT, Julianna Barwick, even Julia Holter - and that's testament to the sense of celestial, near-metaphysical grace with which his music consistently manifests.
