Just as Ember has this pacing that reminds me of a bonfire roaring to life before dwindling down to cinders by morning, Taiga is positively dripping with atmosphere.
There is simply so much life buzzing in these tracks. Even in the more serene moments, you have a very clear layering that adds to the forest motif that this album is using. The combination of chiptune sounds is, as always with Kubbi, top shelf. Spiritdancer broadsided me with the sudden shift into a Cascade mood that was SO lush. OneQuarterPower
