zakè makes music that doesn’t seek to grab your attention. His emotive drone work instead hangs in the background, providing listeners with a felt sense of calm and ease. On his latest work and first release outside of Past Inside the Present, zaké delivers five, loop based compositions that further cement his (tongue and cheek) status as a “Healing Sound Propagandist.” The lead off track, featuring frequent collaborator Wayne Robert Thomas, is warm and inviting, encouraging you to settle in, open up, and let the experience unfold. The remaining tracks continue in the same vein, culminating into the 21 minute apex title track, Milieuxia. – Nick Turner
