Do While "Balloon Clouds/Balloons (Alternate Master)"

John Somers, operating under the Do While moniker, has created a gorgeous soundtrack to a summer reverie, if these takes of "Balloon Clouds/Balloons" are any indication. These two tracks flow seamlessly into each other, moving from the soothing vocals and dense, brightly crackling haze of "Balloon Clouds" to the more loop-based "Balloons," which sounds like Stars of the Lid on anti-depressants. With his eponymous debut out soon on Baltimore's Wigflip label, Somers officially joins the ranks of elite producers making ambient music with subtlety and substance, two qualities that are often missing from more academic ambient works.
