Mark Pritchard’s beautiful and tantalisng ‘Under The Sun’ continues his interest in expansive, long-form productions that defy single genre classifications. At its heart, the record is ambient-leaning folk, with each track unfurling into the next with almost tear-inducing dramatic builds. There’s the added bonus of guests including Bibio, Thom Yorke and Linda Perhacs, who each contribute their own distinct styles to the album.

Like pianist Erik Satie or Brian Eno, Pritchard is a master of maintaining atmosphere while threading in minimalist compositions with vocals. And while ‘Under The Sun’ isn’t quite as strong as its monumental predecessor ‘76:14’, Pritchard still has an eye for coaxing out the astoundingly beautiful from ‘cold’ electronics.
