A few hours ago the Indian ambient-rock trio Ioish revealed the LP Reconstructing Dreams.
The six song, approximately twenty seven minutes, album is comprised of luxuriant layers of progressive-rock that build quiet architectural complexities of multi-faceted washes that keep the listener focused within the angularity and extemporised feel of the compositions.

Dreamy waves of synthesis drift quietly through calmly repeated guitar chords giving the music a sense of gentle rotation while the bass creates a convex mirror reflection to the music as percussion trembles gently beneath the surface to which vocal drifts in an out of a soft-light focus.

Best not to hit play if you are about to head to something requiring adrenaline as to enjoy the song to fullest extent you will need time to allow the day to continue at unhurried pace for quite some time after the conclusion of the just under four minute composition.
Harking of reel to reel tape recordings Faking Music (available on bandcamp) has the warmth that comes through analogue recording in a track that drifts lazily through the room in an ambient psychedelic combination of synthesiser, guitars, percussion and multi-vocal that leaves the listener calmly reposed in a state of subjective intuition as the brain slows down to the weaving textures that flow through the ears.
