Hawksmoor ‘Methods Of Dreaming’ (Spun Out Of Control)

Lacking the time, money or stomach to spend 45 minutes in an amniotic flotation tank? Try ‘Methods Of Dreaming’, a Moog-drenched opus from Bristol-based James McKeown. Its title derives from a 1979 academic paper investigating techniques of lucid dreaming, and McKeown’s gentle synth loops and organic bass are sublimely somnambulant. There are rhythms and melodies in the ambience (‘Strict Parallels’ has a Berlin School urgency, and ‘La Peste’ is even redolent of Tomita), but the overall feel is of blissful Sunday afternoon slumber.
