It would be fair to say that a vinyl edition of "Celestial Realms" has been a long time coming. The one-off collaboration between new age musician Jonathan "Lyghte" Goldman and cult ambient artist Laraaji was originally only released on cassette. As Laraaji's reputation has rocketed in recent years, demand for the hard-to-find tape has risen - hence this first vinyl reissue. It comprises two long, fluid and laidback compositions built around slowly shifting ambient chords, delay-laden zither textures, subtle bell melodies, occasional guitar solos and meandering synthesizer lines. Both tracks are wonderfully blissful and calming, suggesting that they're best listened to while lying flat on your back.
