Tim Hecker "Sea of Pulses"

Tim Hecker's work has, in the past, garnered the label "cathedral ambient," so it's no surprise that this track sounds a little like a pipe organ being played inside of a massive church. What is somewhat more unexpected is the bassline here, which provides a small bit of chord progression underneath the otherwise unchanging keyboard notes. "Sea of Pulses" is off Hecker's forthcoming full-length, An Imaginary Country, which will hit stores on March 9, courtesy of kranky.

Always thought of Hecker as a serious also-ran behind the more obvious innovations of Christian Fennesz, but this business sounds good.

The Fennesz comparisons are inevitable, but Tim Hecker's music has much more of a soul. kranky can do no wrong.
