Metamatics :: Instamatic (XTT)

Instamatic opens an engaged musical channel filled with positive frequency bursts and head nodding rhythmic activity that will hopefully reveal further Metamatics material. Lee Anthony Norris‘ vast catalog has taken many twists and turns, venturing through all facets of electronic music as well as expansive ambient / atmospheric interludes along the way.

Autumn of Communion :: Autumn of Communion 2 (Anodize)

Blending post-digital now-voyaging with a hefty hark-back, these sub-genre archaeologists draw on trajectories of early-mid ’90s halcyon days and hybrids of IDM experimentalism and environmental space music, tapping into rich veins fed by cult-classic Namlook-mediated albums of the period. United in a spirit of inquiry into head and ear-space, Lee Norris and Michael Gainford follow […]

Norken :: The Lost Day (Delsin)

This is a nice IDM release more suited for the dance floor enthusiast than the home listener. Consisting of four tracks, none of which particularly stand out as exceptional, my feelings on this release are similar to that of the recent Sierra Romeo 12″ on FWD. Most people seemed unimpressed, as it was a good […]
