Fact Music News has voted ÆOLUS: A Retrospective as its 12th best re-release for 2017.
“If, like us, you’ve been losing yourself in the technicolor paradise of Björk’s recent Utopia album and need a wider selection of synth-and-flute pairings in your life, these two collections of vintage ambience will be right up your alley. This retrospective of Hawaiian composer and musician Robert “Aeolus” Myers compiles choice cuts from his four long unavailable private press albums and offers an illuminating portrait of one of Honolulu’s leading new age practitioners.
“Aeolus moves from epic Vangelis-style synthscapes to vaporous seances, then takes a left turn into sultry bedroom funk. It’s completely magnificent once you adjust yourself to the bright sound palette and opens the door for future explorations by Aloha Got Soul into Hawaii’s environmental/new age music scene.”
Still available through Aloha Got Soul’s Bandcamp site.
