Aguirre hit us with a repress of Charlatan's 'Equinox' - a synth odyssey originally released on tape via House Of Sun and now available, for the first time, on heavyweight vinyl. Charlatan is the work of Digitalis head honcho and all round synth obsessive Brad Rose. This is Rose's second collection of recordings under the Charlatan guise and is an impressive display of synth virtuosity, blending rich synth drones, cosmic delays and static hiss to great effect. Sounds like an all analogue recording too as the tones are both warm and a bit lairy sounding implying a fair bit of tape saturation that benifits the retroist tone of this LP. It's always found it difficult to review what are effectively a load of drifting synth soundscapes and make it sound exciting and involving (i reckon it's definitely a personalised experinece) yet 'Equinox' is a truly outstanding collection, perfect for pondering the complexities of a wasted modern existence or simply easing the stress of a particularly crappy day. Always a pleasure to hear dedicated synthesizer records executed with such clarity and cool. An impressive collection.
