Pantha Du Prince
This Bliss
(Dial, 2007)

As far as minimalist, beat driven electronic music is concerned, This Bliss can’t be beat (and yes, that includes my thoughts on The Field’s From Here We Go Sublime). Such a beautiful, slow building album. There is an incredible amount of warmth here for all the inorganic wiring that produced it. And how he embedded the whole album with an undercurrent of understated optimism is beyond me. You simply can’t listen to it without feeling good about life. Perfect for headphones, This Bliss is bliss indeed.
