Goldmund: Famous Places (CD, Western Vinyl, August 2010)

Earlier this year, I discovered and was charmed by Goldmund’s 2008 release The Malady Of Excellence. I am equally taken with this year’s follow-up. Like its predecessor, Famous Places is dominated by the piano, recorded with wonderful intimacy by Goldmund (aka Keith Kenniff) himself. However, this has more other instruments and electronic effects than I remember hearing on TMOE. These are never intrusive, though, the additional layers are gossamer-thin and only enhance the effectiveness of these highly atmospheric compositions.

I bought this from Boomkat. They describe it as Home Listening / Modern Classical / Ambient.
