“When the City Was Bare” is one of 10 immersive productions set to appear on Dust, the new full-length effort from Berlin artist Glitterbug which sees a release today via Gold Panda’s growing Notown label. Lined with sparse rhythms, “When the City Was Bare” focuses on a gorgeous procession of sequenced bell sounds, behind which lush atmospheres subtlety bend and swirl. Electing not to build into a far grander affair as it progresses, the production is less an outright song and more a trip into an inviting aural world—one whose rich textures and fine craftsmanship bodes well for Glitterbug’s new LP.
