  • Andy Graham's first EP under his own name still had the bones of techno, its rumbling rhythms and metallic sounds. On this new one those bones have turned to dust, and what's left is lovely, sculpted ambient in the vein of modern classical composers like Nils Frahm. The title track from Strata is the choice cut, with big, bold chords that warble like someone on the verge of tears, both triumphant and impossibly sad, working up to an ecstatic climax of blindingly bright melody. It's the kind of overwhelming outpouring of emotion where you can't tell if you're laughing, crying, or both.
