FILTER Grade: 82%

During his diverse career, Yann Tiersen has provided the unforgettable atmospherics to Amélie and collaborated on his solo records with icons like Jane Birkin and Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser. The Frenchman’s new album Skyline finds him in a très existential state of mind, and its tracks are beautiful storms for restless times (“Another Shore,” “The Gutter”). Sigur Rós producer Ken Thomas’ mixing works magic with Tiersen’s dense aural layering, making every song like a journey through a forest of emotions.
