Like six or seven years ago is when I really buckled down and started really getting into music in a big way, and Shimmering Hour was one of the first albums that I found that wasn't like this pre-established masterpiece in all the elitist musical communities, like it was the first semi-obscure album that I really enjoyed without having a bunch of outside validation telling me why I like it. It was mine and it was a truly personal experience. Over time it became my official winter album. I dunno. I think Shimmering Hour really has a lot to do with the development of my tastes in music. Like the feelings that it gave me are the dragon that I chase to this day.
anti-tommy, I also recommend NRTHNDR. There are plenty of gems in his older works as well, but there definitely is a lot to dig through. I would also look for the tracks "The Sea, And I.," "The Secret Lake," "Library Grey," and "Bon Pont," which are on various net albums he's released.
