8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 23 August 2012
Ah, Patrick “Kosmonaut” Park is back with more of his krautedelic experiments in electronics. I see that, much like Weezer before him, he has opted to go down the self-titled blue debut/titled sophomore effort/self-titled green third album route.
This tape opens with a quiet, thin, high-pitched whistle with pulsing static clicks which soon subside into subtly swirling cosmic synth drones and a flickering treble pulse before the drifting ambience is punctuated by modular bleep-loops and kettle-whistle scratchings for a more unsettling, ethereal roboto-scape to the bumpy, bright repeato-electronics we’ve heard from him so far. There’s still some pulsing beats and slow drifting melodies present but he’s further out into ambient cosmic drift territory with sounds and melodies that caress your synapses rather than force themselves into your head, with the album’s slow-burning 15-minute centrepiece ‘Five Wisdoms’ channelling the healing vibes of High Wolf with the bongy euphoria of Astral Social Club.On the flip there’s more somnolent and skittery finely detailed retro-futurist dronescapes with a quiet patience and robotic calm, with the most active techno-pulsing decayed electro churgle not coming until right at the end for mammoth closer ‘Smoking Mirror’ which again brings to mind Astral Social Club’s post-apocalyptic euphoric chunter. A dark, slow trip full of creeping haunted electronics.
