For Jacob Mandell's second release on his own label Kodama, he decides to serve as an UNDERLING, reveling in pure ambience. The metallic tones of "Cuzco" is like traveling along the rim of a Tibetan prayer bowl, while "Sans Fe" goes deeper and more spare, even as new sounds intrude on the steady, repeated chord. "Vatic" gets even emptier, opening up the spaces between sounds and letting in the silences. Mesmerizing, if not actually compelling.
