westernmind is the solo ambient project from Jason Kollar, who’s aching and subtle music carries worlds of emotions within shifts of tonality. For his latest single, “Through Smoke, Still Home” Kollar builds on a warped piano line that stretches and evolves throughout the composition. Guitar and drums are folded in as a nod to Kollar’s passion for the post-rock of his past. I’m not sure anyone ever grows out of Mogwai. Fantastic work from this forward thinking ambient artist.
