Taken from my favourite release of 2013, ‘Winter Flags‘ is the kind of track that would fit seamlessly into the soundtrack of a Sofia Coppola film. Winter Flags is the side project of Tbilisi, Georgia native Gacha Bakradze. Gacha‘s penchant for creating forward-thinking, emotive ambient music is plain for all to hear on his debut Winter Flags release. The seven-track debut is a masterclass in ambient electronic music. The EP is available via Dado Records.
That time of the year has come once again, formulating lists of favourites from the year. In truth, 2013 has been a year of many exciting new artists/releases that I haven’t got around to checking out. The following is a selection of releases that particularly impressed in my opinion and they are very worthy of your attention.
