- Words: Christine Hsieh
- Label: Ghostly International
Sunbox, by Michigan-based three-piece Kiln, is a delectable album of fizzing, popping, gently breathing electronica, its dulcet melodies offset by soft burbles, clicks and shuffles that envelope the listener in a haze of synthetic noise. From the broad, sweeping opener ("Royal Peppermint Forest") through the crackling, minimalist beats of "Season," Sunbox succeeds in luring the listener into an unobtrusive yet ultimately engaging aural environment. As Ghostly International continues to expand their range, it's refreshing to see them remain firmly entrenched in underground sounds.
