Alex Albrecht returns with Aurora -- a pristine follow-up to his Blue Caves transmission via Scissor and Thread in 2018. The Melbourne based composer and sound designer Albrecht has leans into his predilection for woozy, affecting melodies intertwined with skittering drums and snaking grooves, and Aurora brings that to the fore with six tracks of shimmering beauty. "Spring Orchard" opens the record, effortlessly merging deeply buried keys with washes of dreamlike synths, and dubby effects. "Wildflower Walk" is a melancholic affair, underpinned with a restless groove. The title track "Aurora" treads a similar path, but with a more driving approach, while an interplay between piano, guitar, and synths drenched in reverb offer a warm, enveloping atmosphere. "Aurora" is also shared here as a remix by Roza Terenzi, who entirely reworks the track with her signature club ready grooves. "Kennett River" exhibits a kind of smudged, cinematic hip hop feel.
