Introspection has not been in short supply this year. Neither have feelings of loss, melancholy or even hints of joyous release. Perhaps I’m not quite â€˜selling’ this to you, however this a great album fully worth your undivided attention. Beginning with the shimmering Night Effect which stuns via a causal whir of excitement as layers of sound build, lift and drop into sequence – breath-taking, emotional, eloquent. Aka Daniel Herrmann then proceeds to dazzle with each number supplying a rollercoaster of pulsating notes to inspire waves of thought. At mid-point Bubble Cell leans on a heavier intention as does the temptation of the final Cosmic Noise, though in-between Effective Height implements beauty, while Side Bands twists a tripped out Pink Floyd through the imagination of electrical interference. Perfect.
Release: June 19
