Album Review
Reviewed 2011-05-01
Lunar Miasma is back at it again. This synth mastermind from Athens, Greece is alarmingly prolific (see last week’s A-file add) and he cranks out a ton of great stuff. This latest release sees him developing a more refined and textured sound that adds a variety of great percussive elements, foundsound samples, and chimes to his signature mesmerizing blasts of synthesizer. This release comes to us courtesy of the good folks at Field Studies, a fledgling cassette label run by Eric Hanss, the program director of the Chicago community station WHPK. Support fellow non-profit radio stations! And great music!

1. A highbeam blitz of syth with marvelous layers of gently tingling percussion, and the pitter-patter of rapid keyboard notes. Scattered xylophones and high-pitched accents further add to the sheer brilliance of its luster.
2. A slow-building swirl of undulating pulses. Gradually building into a symphony of synthesized splendor. Excellent use of layering and tempo, with a great deal of attention paid to song structure. Wow, someone must have gotten some high marks in music school. This track is 10 minutes long, and I can guarantee that it’ll seem too short. A truly excellent cut.
