Cathode Ray Tube :: Atlas Of Migraine (Heterodox)

Atlas Of Migraine details an expansive foray through the ventricles of intelligent dub music, mustering up hundreds of ideas that disperse evenly upon its technoid infused landscape.

Cathode Ray Tube (aka Chang Terhune) returns with a new full-length titled Atlas Of Migraine for Oregon-based Heterodox—a visual mapping of sorts that details the artists’ 16-year battle with migraines—now displayed in a musical trajectory.

“Florence” stands out as an Alex Paterson parallel production of early dub-techno washes sprinkled with hypnotic low-end sandblasting. The entire album, for that matter, more than delivers on this reference point. “Dubious Waves” skitters about with drenched ambient strains and a blissful versus gritty electronic fury. “Pond Life Dub” meanders and slithers about with its echoed infestation and exotic execution—time is altered on this track alone as it eradicates preconceived notions of what electronic music should feel like. But just as you thought this artist would run out of ideas, he baffles the ears with wide-ranging bass. “Eye Movement (5th Stanza)” continues to breathe new life into dub-techno spheres and exudes electrical bliss. “First Thing On Land” exhibits a powerful, robust, and exploding rhythmic bass rumble and industrial smattering—harking back to the artists’ darker sonic roots.

As a whole, Atlas Of Migraine details an expansive foray through the ventricles of intelligent dub music, mustering up hundreds of ideas that disperse evenly upon its technoid infused landscape. Deserving further accolades for his prolific work, Cathode Ray Tube explores multiple genres of the exp-electronic music scene as Atlas Of Migraine summarizes his signature exquisitely.

Atlas Of Migraine is available on Heterodox.
