Willits & Sakamoto "Completion" on Pitchfork

Ghostly International are set to deliver (as in "the goods") come July 31st with the new collaboration from Willits + Sakamoto, entitled Ancient Future on LP and CD.  Pitchfork checked it out - and boy did they wax poetic (who doesn't these days?) about their newly-dropped track, "Completion" ~

The collected pieces play like a series of dreams: tones float through a cloudless veil, wrapping past each other in phantasmagorical shapes, coming toward Earth but never quite touching down. "Completion," the final track, is an appropriately named and placed finale, then, its glowing wisps of sound steadily sinking back toward reality. Sakamoto's piano line seems to sharpen across these seven minutes, while a little past halfway, Willits' guitar playing begins to hew more toward melody than mood. It sounds like the brain slowly telling the eyes to open to the morning sun.
