A second visit to Doug Kaufman's stunning EP Elva this month, today with River Brethren.

If you are a regular listener / reader of this series you'll know about my love of integrating soft electronic layers with chamber and orchestral  acoustic instruments. I think the combination creates a gorgeous ethereal sound world that we can escape to when life gets a bit hectic. Today's piece is a perfect example of this.

The more I listen to this EP, the more I love it. There is a vibrant sort of tranquillity to it - like a beautiful garden in full bloom.

If today's piece resonates with you, I really recommend having a listen to the whole of Elva, every piece is a real gem.

with love,
Samantha
