Lilith's Heir This is the stuff right here, fellows. I'd easily rank this up there with my favorite ambient albums. Pur in particular (Purticular?) is the universal heartbeat you didn't know you were missing till you're engulfed in it. Do yourself a favor, eh?

“held | pur” is the fourth release of the ambient music project, andarctica. Two live improvisations on guitar and pedals, “held | pur” begins with a bright, open-armed invitation before turning inward with the persistent pulse of “pur”. Composed as a meditation, focus or sleep aid, the simplicity and duration of the second piece lays a landscape for creative expression and losing yourself in thought.

Thank you to my partner, my family and HSP for their support
