Panabrite is back with his second full-length album (I thought it was his third but I guess one of those wasn’t full-length enough) of nostalgic cosmic synthscapes. Here at Norman Towers we’re quite fond of Norm Chambers and his therapeutic analogue drift. There’s just the right mix of melody and analogue tones for a sonorous, languid stroll through your glimmering subconscious. The analogue tones and modular melodic loops on here are totally absorbing and uplifting and slowly paced for a bit of a new age healing type experience like you’d get from Dolphins Into The Future, Food Pyramid, High Wolf, people like that, but mixed with the kind of narrative feel that the excellent recent Egyptology LP.
For these kind of modular-loop-heavy compositions this stuff is really melodic - in other hands modular loops often turn into grooves which are quite awkward and lolloping but everything here sounds totally natural and smooth, showing a real deftness of touch and melodic instinct. Total slow, euphoric, beatless driving-into-the-sunset business throughout.
8/10 Deep Gloss Customer review, 26th June 2016
Very pleasant synth music, I'm drifting away over the first three tracks, hmmmm....oooh, track 4, Capraia, is getting a little bit more edgy with some deep drones to wake you up a bit. Next up is Departing, with a steady bass beat walking through a slightly sad landscape.....sorry to see you go. On Suite (for Winnie and Roxy) it's definitely raining - s'truth the rain on Thursday! We couldn't get into London to see Tales of Murder and Dust the trains were so messed up - but it's OK, the sun's come out and the birds are singing, somebody's playing an acoustic guitar and I think it's all going to be OK, with a cool Balearic groove and all the loose ends neatly tied together after a bit of faffing about. Final track Infinite Passage is back to the opening beauty and it's just as well it's a CD as late at night playing a vinyl version one could easily nod off and wear out the stylus...
