Includes download code. The Smoke Clears is the abstract ambient project of producer John Daly (One Track Records/ Secretsundaze). He debuted this alias with Listen (FUR 080CD/LP) in 2013 on Further Records. Following up Listen, The Smoke Clears builds upon it's predecessor's ambient abstractions while adding another layer of nuanced melodic contemplation. The album kicks off with "Fathoms", a deceptively calm track but with a paced sense of urgency which is evident throughout the LP, belying its calm undertones. Continuing at this pace for the rest of the first side the LP takes a side turn with the lush "Slipstream" melting into the only vocal track of the album - the dubbed out bliss of "Oh My Days" featuring Cian Finn. Showcasing a side that might not be familiar to those who come to the table with knowledge of the Galway producers house and techno releases on his own imprint One Track Records as well as Running Back and more, this is lush downtempo machine music equally as at home cranked up one louder sound system style, or for late night home listening.
