"Schorre" was first released last year under its creator's real name, Andrea Porcu. The Berlin-based Italian originally recorded it as a self-medication tool, crafting a heady, headphone-friendly journey out of field recordings captured at Belgium's Schorre National Park. 12 months on Porcu has decided to revisit it under the Music For Sleep alias, "sonically manipulating" and "reprocessing" it on tape in order to make it "a pure longform background soundtrack". The resultant revision is double the length of its predecessor at 42 minutes, but somehow even more magical: a becalmed, slowly shifting ambient epic whose blissfully elongated musical movements come wrapped in spacious, barely recognizable field recordings.

Take the shimmering guitars of the Cocteau Twins, dilate and lengthen with the wistfulness of Boards of Canada and release them like one of Robert Rich’s haunting soundscapes with a jazz coda and you have Carlo Giustini's 'Custodi'. It's brilliant. sepulchre19
