Very likeable: "Laika" from d_rradio’s upcoming postclassical-tastic Forecast, on Heat Death.
Stars of the Lid will obviously be the generic reviewer’s de rigueur reference, and, yes, there’s definitely an influence from them there (where isn’t there in the current crop of slowcore-ambient-drone-cum-postclassical-home-listeningzzzzzzz?). But, derivation aside, this Geordie lot's Forecast is better, to this LMYE scribe’s ears at least, than Mr Wiltzie’s effort with his latest collaborative flame, Dustin O’Halloran, A Winged Victory for the Sullen.

A possibly knowing reference to Stars…?
Shades of early-mid Eno too (Apollo esp.). Also I can hear Kiln’s sadly unsung Thermals (Infraction) too (try this, that, and the other), esp. on the following:
Last track is just gorgeous, and wins a spontaneously instituted LMYE Award for Tuesday Track of the Day
