Automne Fold from 2008 was a stand-out record. Unlike anything else.
For me, Kangding Ray hasn't quite managed to match that level since then. His interests have veered more toward beat-heavy electronica where he has blended in with the crowd. This is still in that vein but sounds pretty damn good. Here's hoping the upcoming album, Solens Arc, due out in January 2014, will knock our socks off.
