Reminds me of "In a Garden of Eden" and "Journey to the Sun" and makes me yearn for more ambient travelogues. I have now seen Sri Lanka through Wil's head and it was wonderful.
Favorite track: Dawn Sequence.

As the nights darken and the winter chill starts to creep in… Let this album transport you to the exotic island of Sri Lanka, where Wil’s field recordings of his time spent there intertwine with the analogue warmth of looping synths and enigmatic, dreamy melodies.

There's a warmth to this album that I love. The melodies are beautifully performed, off the grid with lots of interesting turns, and the effect processing is masterfully dialed-in, creating this really lush and wide sound. Ali Khan
