Kompakt’s new MP3 label steps into the light with a full-length ambient release from New Zealand’s Andrew Thomas. Shifting between the piano-laden solitude of tracks like “Lit From Failing Light” and the pure droning energy of “M and K” and “I Am Here Where Are You,” Gaps In the Sun hums with Thomas’ gently swirling brand of nouveau ambience. Aimless yet comforting, the tracks wind and loop through an equilibrium of textural warmth, crisp static pulses, and reserved instrumentation on their way to nowhere in particular-which is often the comfiest place to be.
