The latest installment in an ongoing mix series, Absent Friends Vol. 2 presents Minor Science’s take on ambient: a hyper-dense, micro-edited collage form incorporating music, sound and speech. Progressing by a series of lulls and wild crescendos, its structure mimics the volatile behaviours of weather systems; over time, an oblique but powerful emotional narrative emerges.

A collaborative work shines brightest when its stars align, blend, and stand out on their own. The sharpest ears will hear elements of each artist at different times. That rush of air sound on "Inkjet" sounds very much like Beatrice Dillon. While Call Super's signature tones make an appearance on "Fluo" at 1:45 and beyond. The clarinet playing on "Fluo" must be Call Super's father, whose work can be heard on Call Super's stellar album "Arpo." Shout out to Hessle for the unrivaled consistency. Edward
