William Flynn’s bold, new ambient EP contains an array of eclectic trinkets that create an incredible collective of sounds. This album is what I think might be good for ambient beginners, thanks to Flynn’s steadily incorporated rhythm. Its constant structure makes it easier to follow than another soundscape album might. The fluid sound of “Lion” is one of the EP’s highlights as it rolls steadily and lazily along for over six minutes. Its simplicity is quite brilliant. Each track is lengthy and utilizes aqueous samples, which help provide a mellow sound that helps calm a troubled soul. –Kamryn Feigel
