Djam Karet - A Sky Full Of Stars For A Roof (2019)
The 19th album from this US band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, keyboards, bass, guitars and numerous other strings and percussion instruments.
They had help from four other musicians who provided choir, sitar, bouzouki, charango, guitars and bass.
I have in my review of their last two albums expressed my strong reservations towards the quality of these two albums. They were decent enough. But that was it. You can find reviews of these two albums somewhere else in this blog and one from # 1 of this blog at this link.
This album continues down the same road as the previous albums. Ambient music with some pretty heavy krautrock influences.
There is also some Irish ambient music influences here. The music is acoustic guitars driven with additional instruments added on too.
The acoustic guitars core of the music really drives this album forward into a more pastoral landscape.
This landscape is really lush and the cover art-work really reflects what is on inside. A lush, ambient album.
And the quality is also really good too. So much that I have found an ambient music album I really like. Well done, Djam Karet.
