Bing & Ruth – No Home of the Mind

Wednesday 15th, February 2017 / 12:54
By Alec Warkentin

4AD

To string together the words “up-and-coming” with “ambient artist,” especially in a genre that prides itself on its slow pace, might not make sense at first. Still, if anyone is worthy of that distinction, it’s 4AD newcomers Bing & Ruth.

No Home of the Mind, the five-piece’s first effort for the label, breezes through its blissful ten tracks, at some points resembling label-mate Tim Hecker’s Dropped Pianos EP, and at others successfully emulating the rising swell of Stars of the Lid’s The Tired Sounds Of (except with less drone).

No Home of the Mind also separates itself from the at-times overlong airiness that is commonly found within other ambient recordings, keeping all tracks at easily-consumable lengths and featuring an array of left-field turns that showcase the collective’s knack for recognizing the many parts needed for constructing a balanced atmosphere.

As ambient producers go, Bing & Ruth are the new breed in regards to composition, a welcome fresh expression in a genre that seems to be dominated by the same unchanging acts, and the malleability of No Home of the Mind is a reminder of what makes this genre so good in the first place.
