Justin Adams: Ribbons review – seamless ambient fusion

English guitarist Adams is a man of many parts. Nearby his employment in Robert Plant’s Band of Joy have come coordinated efforts with arranged North African and Middle Eastern illuminating presences – forsake rockers Tinariwen and Terakaft, Moroccan Gnawa performer Hamid el Kasri and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Here, he collaborates with Norwegian vocalist Anneli Drecker (of Röyksopp) for a surrounding excursion that draws motivation from innovator painters, for example, Rauschenberg and Pollock. Adams’ depressions and circles regularly convey Saharan flavors, while Drecker’s silent, ethereal vocals inspire the void of the Arctic north, with a touch of Tuvan throat-singing on Lightshaft. A consistent combination that throws a serene however restricting spell.
