Since the gum we like is going to come back in style, it’s quite appropriate to celebrate with an album that refers to the cult series Twin Peaks when it comes both to its title and vivid cover.
However, that is how far it goes when it comes to the Twin Peaks atmosphere of Yasume – the rest is all about multilayered glitch and playful beats. John Twells (Xela) and Gabriel Morley (Logreybeam) worked together as Yasume only for one album, which was released on City Centre Offices – a rather important label that unfortunately has been put to sleep a few years ago. Although it has nothing to do with the Badalamenti-esque string score, ‘Where We’re From The Birds Sing A Pretty Song’ perfectly works as a traditional IDM album, strongly reminiscent of the distinctive sounds of CiM.
