Helios: Eingya
Buy! - (Type)
This is the second album from Boston based artist Keith Kenniff going under the Helios moniker (he has also released an album under the alias Goldmund). Like his first album, Unomia, this is gorgeous, serene ambient electronic mixed with lovely guitar and piano. Kenniff, who studied music at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, shows a great talent for composition and melds this diverse range of sounds wonderfully. I hear similarities to Boards Of Canada at times, Brian Eno, and even Sigur Ros sans vocals. This is my favorite release so far this year. 5/2/2006 - Don Yates
