**includes a free copy of the album on CD** Kompakt's annual ambient round-up lands with lovely offerings from Wolfgang Voigt & Jorg Burger's new project, Mohn, plus Superpitcher, Magazine, Marsen Jules, Simon Scott and BVDub among others. The Mohn track 'Manifesto' opens proceedings with an exercise in sublimely opiated but grungy electronics; cloud formations of padded, Gas-like textures circulate the soundsphere with an unhurried and somnambulant grace, cleansing the palette for the tantalising melody of Superpitcher's 'Jackson'. Further in, Cologne's Magazine collective deliver an album highlight with the smooth harmonic contours of 'The Visitors Bureau' and Wolfgang Voigt is in full symphonic flight again for the exquisite 'Ruckverzauberung 5'. Meanwhile, unlike everyone else, Marsen Jules is unafraid to deploy percussion on the lush, tumbling structures of 'Swans Reflecting Elephants', which strongly reminds of moments from Biosphere's beautiful 'Dropsonde' album, leaving ex-Slowdive man, Simon Scott to submerge us in the serene, strung-out dronescape 'For Martha', and Axel Willner's Loops Of Your Heart ensemble fade to close with the burbling kosmiche intimacy of 'Riding The Bikes'.
