"SMM: Opiate" is the second release in Ghostly's SMM series, which is an ongoing exploration of the evocative possibilities of sound, with a focus classical minimalism, electronic and drone composition, film soundtracks, and fragile imaginary landscapes.

"SMM: Opiate" is the follow-up to 2011's "SMM: Context", and as with that record, it's a carefully chosen selection of music, compiled over some two years from around the world.

As a whole, the experience is certainly evocative of the opiated sensation evoked by the record's title - but really, it's a compilation that invites you to find your own meaning in it, or simply to appreciate the beauty of its music and escape the world for a while.

"SMM: Opiate" features original tracks from SIMON SCOTT, A WINGED VICTORY FOR THE SULLEN, CELER, BLACK SWAN, JIM HAYNES, EN, PJUSK, FIELDHEAD, and NOVELLER.
