Seems like the world needs a chill-out, and Kieran Hebden is the man for the job. For Christmas last year, he released two compilations under his long-running Four Tet banner. Parallel consists of ambient tracks–many released under his silly, impossible to replicate alias-so it’s nice to see them given wider attention. The tracks all carry the “Parallel” name, but he immediately hits with the epic opening track. Over the course of an unhurried half hour, “Parallel 1” simply draws you in and relaxes you with its amorphousness. It is a fine example of why we love Four Tet.
