Album Review
Reviewed 2011-09-12
New CD-R release from Jeff Roman’s excellent minimal project Sky Stadium. Jeff takes a break from analog formats to hatch this lovely new disk with the help of the quirky guys at Animal Image Search. (Although he’s no stranger to digital formats as evidenced by his online label TealFX) This 7-track trip has some great stand-out moments all woven into its cozy, drifting swirls of synth, 4 AM profoundness and incredible feelings of contentedness. Loose scatterings of gemutlich envelopments and woozy tides of sound that promise the type of clarity that can only be achieved via expensive allergy medications.

*1. (1:49) Enveloping pulses of synth and the deep rumbles of storm clouds.
2. (3:00) On-again off-again fluctuating tones, airy whispers, a hint of glo-fi.
3. (2:22) Smooth synth evoking images of holocrystalline formations, and seeing right down to the bottom of a very clear pool.
*4. (5:19) Asymmetric gyrations, a hint of static, and gooey tendrils of reverb. A nice fake-out ending at the four minute mark teases the listener and then brings them back into the fray.
5. (4:09) Spacey moog. Gently resonating bells.
6. (10:09) Slow nerve regrowth, a sluggish lonely trot through an abandoned locale of the past.
*7. (5:57) A colorful sunrise amplified by wispy clouds of smoke. Imagining you see the stars twinkling when it is a mere illusion caused by the random refraction of the turbulent atmosphere. Optimistic yet a tad bit forlorn.
