Tim Hecker might just have unleashed his magnum opus upon us with Love Streams, an eleven track LP that picks up his dropped pianos and brushes them off with a new 4AD indebted sensibility. Love Streams is the sound of Hecker injecting a dose of ultraviolet light into his sounds, and where previous releases have hung back in an unspoken wall of sadness, Love Streams pushes to the forefront as these huge slabs of sound build upon each other.

Recorded in Reykjavik, there are moments of such tranquil beauty to be found in this album that it's practically knocked us sideways and traces of sound from the album will filter through into your consciousness and fade away as fast like when awaking from a dream and the images melt away as you try and hold onto them.

Said to be influenced "by notions of 15th-century choral scores (particularly those by Joaquin de Prez), transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths" Hecker has built up the most unique and beautiful record in his Discography, it glistens with colour while all the time fading into oblivion. Anyone into anything - we strongly urge you to give this some of your time.

Instant download of track: 'Castrati Stack' with all MP3, WAV, WAV 24bit, FLAC pre-orders.
