Sounds Like:
Ambient, Modern Classical, Minimal, Post Rock

This week's sound-check features an elusive and obscure British artist, permanently residing in Australia. Brambles is his minimalist, piano-led modern classical project with a lot to offer to those willing to listen. While the full release, Charcoal, is predominantly ambient, the stand-alone track Petrichor is perhaps the more intriguing composition, drawing inspiration from acts as diverse as the art-rock post-classical sounds of Ulver's A Quick Fix Of Melancholy and Burial's post-garage dubstep aesthetic; all cut-up and haunted vocals and brittle, shimmering passages.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
