Yume is the Japanese word for "dream". It's a fitting title for this latest collection of dreamy, ambient music from Helios, the long-running moniker of prolific composer Keith Kenniff (who also records solo piano under the name Goldmund [Ryuichi Sakamoto is a fan] and electro-tinged indie tunes with his wife Hollie under the name Mint Julep). His new album, says XLR8R, "features a warm bed of sounds highlighted by luminous guitar, elegant piano and crafted rhythms birthed from a multitude of electronic elements."
