Review: AUN - Alpha Heaven (2013)

It’s been a few years since I got to know Cana­dian duo AUN (Julie Leb­lanc, Mar­tin Dumais) from their album Black Pyr­amid on Cyc­lic Law. Com­pared to that album, Alpha Heaven feels a bit less dense, with less focus on heavy drones, and more on open spaces, although both are still present. The main chunk of this album is extremely pleas­ant and mostly calm. More so than pre­vi­ous works, Alpha Heaven seems to have some­thing of an outer space set­ting for me, which is of course stim­u­lated by some of the titles, which sug­gest celes­tial bod­ies and explor­a­tion.
