REVIEW: ‘Nothing is Ever Created or Destroyed’ by Steve Good


STEVE GOOD
Nothing is Ever Created or Destroyed (puffdragon.net)

Fans of ambient dance music might remember an early Steve Good album under his downtempo alias Puff Dragon, a singular exotic gem known as Sazanami (2005) which was released on the Tokyo-based Dakini Records. After a long break from releasing, Steve has recently reappeared and started releasing more subtle and beatless fare under his own name. This new album is like his previous two – Between (2018) and Everything’s Inside Everything Else (2019) – and it’s just as mystical and beautiful. Some morphing drones, some progressions, some gentle oscillating throbs and pretty arpeggios, all languid and shimmering. This is trippy nature ambient – though minus the location recordings – with 21st century new age trimmings.
