Avrocar: Against the Dying of the Light
Around since the 90s and championed by John Peel, Birmingham's Avrocar make late-night wind-down ambient sounds wrapped around radio samples. The drone-tone effect is organic and comforting rather than jarringly mechanical; on tracks like the repetitive 'IAC' and the soundtrack-ish 'Dialogue' they're like a mix of Brian Eno and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop while the courtly 'From An Adjacent Field' is an elegant recitation of a list of colours afloat on a wash of electronica. The album was recorded in near darkness and sessions lasted into the wee small hours, which is the best way to hear their music.
