Tim Arndt has done it again. As Near The Parenthesis, he continues to reward listeners with subtle notes and sublime melodies that stay in your head long after the music stops. You can't necessarily hum one of the songs from memory, but as soon as they start to play you're instantly transported back into beauty. Blissful, indescribable beauty.
Call it ambient, minimalist or "elevator music," if you listen to it with headphones all the way through you WILL be rewarded. Repeatedly.
