"PLUME is aptly titled: this is a record which floats like smoke, all drifting whispers and vaporous, chiaroscuro shadings."

Recording as Loscil, the Vancouver musician Scott Morgan has released albums with themes based around subjects as varied as physics and submarines. His fourth full length is mostly concerned with the atmosphere, with titles like "Halcyon," "Mistral," and "Steam." Loscil uses treated acoustic and electric instruments, as well as synthesizers, to create full-sounding, rounded tones, which he punctuates with microscopic static clicks, matching mood to title with pieces like the unsettled "Rorschach" and the ethereal "Zephyr."
