Jeremy H I'm still astounded by the depth and nuance of every sound I hear in the music of Ochre. Notes decay into percussive elements, clicks and groans burst with subtle harmonics; Everywhere you 'look' in the soundscape he creates you will find something interesting, unique, beautiful. Listening to Ochre is like studying a rich and detailed painting. Favorite track: Helicene.

rishin This may be Ochre's best. The arrangement on David Elsewhere is mysteriously fluid and the bass on Leaving Arcadia somehow envelops you. I think Jack In perfectly captures the feeling of the album art, and maybe Ochre's music in general: immersive, pastoral, and subliminally alien. As always, thank you Ochre! Favorite track: David Elsewhere.

angrmgmt This is one of those really nice "album experiences", which when taken all at once, leaves you with a really good feeling. For one-off hits, it's tough to pick between Helicene and David Elsewhere. Favorite track: Helicene.
