Benn Jordan - Louisiana Morning (2009)

Over the past few years I've discovered a number of new artists and albums thanks to the nature of music blogs today. Benn Jordan has consistently impressed me now, whether that be under The Flashbulb, Acidwolf guises or his actual name. (Pale Blue Dot has taken its place in my top 10 albums of all time)

I only just discovered this 4 track EP which was originally limited to 500 copies and dedicated to the memory of Charlie Cooper III, half of Telefon Tel Aviv, who tragically passed away in January 2009.

Don't expect breakcore or any kind of glitchy IDM. Instead it's a moving tribute of folk infused ambient. I did read the recommendation somewhere to listen to this EP while lying against a tree. Sounds like the perfect idea.
