Idle Worship

In Constant Soul / Guide Blind / Green Ember / Idle Worship / Canopy Dance / High Vibration / Fortress (Flying)

“Glittering, glowing, hand-tooled indie new age music from high realms. UK composer Alex Crispin’s debut solo album is assured and sophisticated, effortlessly morphing through different melodic shapes and ever-hovering clouds of beautiful chords. If you’re curious about the spirit of early DIY new age and its recent rehabilitation via labels like Sounds of the Dawn, Idle Worship is an ideal place to start.” – Ambient Music Guide – Best Albums of 2017

“Based on the tape’s title, I was pleasantly surprised to find Alex Crispin’s Idle Worship to be a beautiful drone album. The album begins with minute synthesiser melodies over a breezy soft pad sweep of chords. Calming, soft, and charming. This is some really special high fidelity new age music. I can feel the warm summer breezes and ideal locations. I lose myself completely. This is definitely something you can relax to. A storm of overtone melodies softly permeates throughout. There is some thoughtful piano work on this album. A while into the second side, hand drums make an appearance. The final track is a fantastic; evocative of Philip Glass’ Einstein on the Beach with rapid fire arpeggios, guitar, and layers upon layers of keyboards.” – Cassette Gods

“Discovering a brilliant ambient dimension while escorted by glowing ethereal companions. Nothing but peacefulness and contentment. Idle Worship bubbles notes from keyboard and strings so naturally, like the Selterswasser spring in the German Taunus mountains. Both possessing organic and unrefined aspects. This composition nears the hour mark floating on skilled creativity.” – Lost In a Sea of Sound
