After a strong run on their native Lisbon’s Principe Discos label, the Portuguese trio Niagara are back with an album of “tropical ambient” productions for Disciples. While their prior work tethered Principe’s patented frenetic rhythms to the kick-less drift of more traditional ambient music, Magna Moralia finds Niagara sprawling out further than ever before. Built entirely from piano improvisations, field recordings, and gurgling synth textures, the record teases out a series of beautiful soundscapes that often feel like variations on a similar theme. And a captivating one at that. With tracks titled as a series of roman numerals tracks in a random order, Magna Moralia is definitely meant to be experienced as a whole, preferably in a natural setting.

“Serene ambient music, where walls of gurgling waterfalls mix with distilled piano melodies...Niagara succeed in creating a mellow blissful atmosphere on Magna Moralia, the peace of not having a single care in the world, for a little while” The Wire

“A soaring music, creating weightless atmospheres, melancholy minimalism, serene depth with soft and soothing waves. A contemplative album of peaceful beauty. Very highly recommended” - Silence And Sound

'A bow to New Age music, a kind of genre excursion, gentle piano figures, radiant sound surfaces, fluorescent arpeggios...designed peacefulness, liquid music' - Das Filter
