I'm not usually one for ambient music, so when I come across an album of it I like I usually get pretty excited about it.

The album is called Yume (the Japanese word for "dream") and, as its name describes, it's full of gorgeous textures and tones that can transport you to beautiful places. This album comes from composer Keith Kenniff under the moniker Helios (he has another project called Goldmund where he does post-classical piano based music).

Yume still has 8 days until it's released, but you can stream it now for free on Hype Machine and pre-order the album through Kenniff's website
