    The sound is as swoon-inducing as it is complex. A brilliant debut full-length.

    While Ice Level's an awful lot to process, it's the finest sort of overload; listen closely enough, and you can almost hear your circuits being rewired.

    When the record keeps from overcomplicating things, it's a pretty unique trip.

    Founder Carlos Hernandez has a tendency to mask his arrangements in more noise than they need, dynamics buried in the resulting fracas.

    The sheer density of the tunes becomes an issue right away.

    On The Ava Luna's debut album - "Ice Level", man can find compositions almost entirely maintained in minimalist arrangements combined with an electronic background, which may somewhat resemble the work of Gorillaz - moreover, with equally positive overtones. Songs such as "Calculus" and "A Year of Mirth" keep a little weird, but cool climate - just like the rest of the material. Expand
