Stray Theories – Even Though We Sleep

A new album from Australian musician/composer Micah Templeton-Wolfe, which will undoubtedly hit the spot for fans of richly textured, melodic ambient. This is another one of those brilliant artists who manages to combine a multitude of instruments; from piano, to strings and guitar, layer upon layer, to create a deep sense of emotion and a deeply engrossing listening experience. Hints of electronica, hints of shoegaze and at times, soundtrack moments similar to Mark Isham’s Crash Soundtrack, especially in album opener ‘Even Though We Sleep’.

The likes of Helios, Rhian Sheehan and Jon Hopkins all manage to nail the beautiful sound of ambient told through the skill of an expert instrumentalist. And now, i’ll definitely be adding Stray Theories to that list.

‘Even Though We Sleep’ is available on Bandcamp for an unmissable $6.

  1. oooh, and mastered by Taylor Deupree – nice. I’ll have to give myself a good talking to as I did not know of fellow Aussie Micah. So thanks for the heads up Ryan !

  2. Thanks for the tip – bought it straight away after hearing just half the first track – and the rest is utterly utterly lush. What a find!
