Album Review
Reviewed 2011-07-21
Acoustic guitar-driven synth soundscapes sprinkled with a myriad of gentle tinkling textures—tape loops, xylophones, oil drums—you name it. Dense and smooth but almost poppy at times a la Monster Rally, Super Minerals or Silver Bullets. After releasing a free EP in May, this is their first full-length album. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these self-proclaimed “duality release initiators” and their “dream state conduits.” Um...what?


1. (11:57) A banger right from the very start, Side A leads off with muffled drone and 2001 Space Odyssey monolith groans. It later extends into a hypnotic new-age self-guided tour of a dense sea of undulating waves and tones. A richly woven tapestry, that’s for sure.

2. (12:02) Sweeping acoustic guitar with a deep midtempo bassbeat to keep the daydream moving at a steady pace. Crackling clouds of noise, flapping wings, insect chirps. Lots of tropical oil drums, and lightly cascading xylophone. The last 3 minutes politely dissolve into a whirlwind of drone.
