Blochemy :: Rame (Sun Sea Sky)

Rame by Blochemy is a decent record for a rainy afternoon, dozing on the couch, sipping some tea and slipping off into dreams.

Rame by Blochemy is a decent record for a rainy afternoon, dozing on the couch, sipping some tea and slipping off into dreams. Perhaps if it were released in 2002 or 2007 it would be fresher than 2017—though it treads some pleasant sonic territory. “Defal” is a gentle opener, reminiscent of Bichi, Proem or Arovane classics. “Rine” is similar, albeit with more glitchy effects. “Nobe” breaks the chain slightly with some detuned notes on the lead. “Zoien” adds some portamento on the lead lines but not much more. There’s little compelling to be found on this album, however, it does a good job of providing uncomplicated listening without sharp edges. Not entirely challenging, Rame pushes no boundaries while clearly showing its influences. And sometimes you need just that.

Rame is available on Sun Sea Sky.
