Telefon Tel Aviv
If IDM is meant for coming down after a night of dancing to trance or house, then Fahrenheit Fair Enough is surely the sort of ambient bliss suited for bedtime. These electronic pieces are big on heavenly synth tones, while light breakbeats (augmented by computerized blips) sputter around below. The acoustic guitar on "John Thomas on the Inside Is Nothing but Foam" lends a refreshing organic element to the mix, fitting comfortably within the breakbeats. Fahrenheit Fair Enough borders on IDM and drum'n'bass at times but, for the most part, it's a soothing listen and one that'll bring you down gently.
