- New Omni-Directional Healing Techniques by Food Pyramid
8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 June 2011
Yet more cosmic synth drone here, this time from Food Pyramid. This is very much of the concordant, New Age, slip-into-your-subconscious-and-don't-come-out-'til-it's-over variety, with trebly pulses and throbs descending warmly over a minimal synth bass and bongo drum rhythm. The artwork seems to consist of images that have been blurred out of all recognition until they're just brightly coloured smudges, like auras rather than objects themselves, and that's an aesthetic that seems to be replicated in the sound this trio produce...like they're not making tunes so much as imagining habitats. This is pretty subtle and slow-paced and repetitive, but it's making me feel good. I'd like to listen to it whilst driving along a very long, very straight road. The pulsing beats always give that sense that you're sort of gliding into the distance. The third track here, 'Manufracture', uses a staccato melody with minimal synth-slap bass to make a pretty badass sound. If they built a water suit for sharks to allow them to walk on land like regular people and one of them became a professional wrestler, I'd like to think his entrance music would sound like this. Then we're back to the therapeutic ambient drift that defined the first couple of tracks; melodic, relaxing, pure tones. The closer Canyon Endless 1974 switches things up further, with tumbling live drums providing the backdrop to a more lively, noisy drone workout. Each song on here does something different, and takes the time to explore each idea thoroughly without ever making you feel like you're stuck in the same place. It's good.
