a c u e s c e - "A Moderately Ugly Bonfire"

Here's a fun one: rife with texture and fantastic sound design, a c u e s c e's "A Moderate Ugly Bonfire" is a sprawling ambient track which harkens back to the rich, layered sound of plunderphonics wizards The Avalanches as much as it does to traditional IDM artists. This track is remarkable in that it is able to strike a balance between functioning effectively as ambient background sound as well as providing consistent depth and interesting nuance for those who prefer to sit and listen more closely. IDM music was first birthed with Warp Records' seminal Artificial Intelligence compilation, which bore a subtitle applicable directly to this track: "electronic listening music." Grab a seat and close your eyes.
