The Joy of Awakening

With field recordings placed almost uncomfortably upfront, a (very unhurried) sonic whirlwind called The Joy of Awakening unfurls. An almost perfect blend of Gkfoes Vjgoaf's first two outings (Magic Days and Light Weaving, respectively), it is also completely its own.
The pulsing, chanting, 8 minute ending might be a favorite, but the banjo beauty of "In Clouds" stands out to me as a unique moment on this album. For those missing ambient bliss in their life.
