TAYLOR DEUPREE
Landing

[Room40,www.room40.org]

If you thought Taylor Deupree's "Northern" release from last year was a gorgeous conglomeration of subtle tones and shifting textures, then wait until you hear his latest EP. "Landing" is not only gorgeous as far as the textures are concerned, it's a highly engaging piece of music. Subtle movements are heard underneath the warm bed of guitars, keyboards, bells. In fact, the tinkling of the bells and miniature percussive elements are key winners in Deupree's soup. The way these persistently twinkle away as to provide some sort of a reference field is stupendous. More than that, there's the gently humming of the guitar that is spread out over the EP's 19 minute length. Delicate motions and aural clues signal light shifts in directions but the music has an overall calm, floating and even pensive quality to it. Colouring the lines with off-white and shades of grey, Deupree stands at the top of his game. "Landing" is but another crowning achievement for the master of micro-tonal beauty. Thrilling effort and one you should pick up without delay.
