'The Lighthouse' and 'While Nothing' both feature on 'ALMA', the current succintly-named mini-album release by ALMA which tears trembling blue stars down from the skies and gives them a great big slow-moving sonic hug. 'ALMA' tracks such as 'The Gardener' and 'The Great Escape' have already garnered praise across the blogosphere while the duo have supported Jakob, Nordic Giants and Yndi Haldi.

Fittingly, seminal (and recently deceased) noisemongers Maybeshewill give 'The Lighthouse' a squelchily serene stadium techno sheen, while the excellently-named Bristolian Message To Bears anoints 'While Nothing' with an eerie elegance. They aren't on their own either - various other experimental vagabonds are working on tracks with a view to a multifarious ALMA remix EP which is due later in 2016 - more news when we have it.

ALMA takes its name from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array – “a really bloody powerful telescope.” This is fitting as their music has been described as feeling like "it would sit at home as the background music to an ambient explosion in space." That music has already been hoovering up comparisons to fellow fragrant explorers Sigur Ros, Patrick Watson and Explosions In The Sky, which is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that as mainstay of Codes In The Clouds and Monsters Build Mean Robots Lambrou’s gently cosmic post-rock provenance is impeccable. Joined by fellow Code In The Clouder Ciaran Morahan, ALMA deploy a loop station, multiple delay pedals, a piano and strings to create a slow-moving, high-flying soundscape of luscious gravitas...stadium techno sheen or not.

"Sad, uplifting, haunting, atmospheric and oozing confidence." - flushthefashion
