Ancient Ocean makes ambient music fit for an alien world

1498151971

Kentucky native J.R. Bohannon is now based in New York City, crafting gorgeous ambient music as Ancient Ocean that blurs the line between natural and synthetic. While the southern twang of “Titan’s Island,” his latest album’s title track, might falsely suggest a return to rural roots, it’s outer space that Bohannon’s truly thinking of here; Saturn’s largest moon, to be exact.  Turns out, pedal steel guitar sounds even better when it’s millions of miles outside Earth’s orbit.  Stream “Titan’s Island” below and grab the album September 22 through Beyond Beyond is Beyond.
