Landon Speers makes gorgeous, patient, higher-purpose electronic music that matches well with his other art-form, photography. His new EP, Spaced Jam, blooms and resonates and dissolves for you as anticipated, but his well-known sound has evolved now into into a beating, pulsing, rhythmic thing.
Yes, there are drums, and yes, they are good.
On his bandcamp page, Landon tells the story:
I was bed ridden for 11 days at the end of July/start of August 2011 with what seemed like a myriad of sudden health problems.
Between percocets and nausea, awful sleeps, Predator 2 and all the Harry Potter movies I worked on a few tracks while in bed. These songs comprise Spaced Jam.
