Golden Retriever – Flight song (from the album Seer on Thrill Jockey)

An absolutely gorgeous piece of minimalist electronica from the Portland duo, Matt Carlson on modular synthesizer and Jonathan Sielaff on bass clarinet.

While the former lays down intricately patterned melodies, which dance over you like sparkles of light in the ocean, the latter brings some wonderful and primal drones to bear, taking the music into smearing, ambient majesty.

It's so good that while Brian Eno no doubt comes to mind, there's also a hint of the master French orchestral arranger (and Serge Gainsbourg collaborator) Jean-Claude Vannier.

Nothing short of superb.
