- When We Were Eating Unripe Pears by Bee Mask
1 review. Write a review for us »
The mysterious Bee Mask always seems to make people’s ears prick up when he comes on the stereo...this one had Li’l Biz asking what it was within a couple of minutes. Mr Mask is known to his friends as Chris Madak, and on this new album he’s creating wondrous, busy cosmic soundscapes with lots of synth drones and whooshes, bubbly noises, freeform melodic shapes and mind-bending rhythmic clutter.
It’s quite unpredictable, minimal music but at the same time is quite new agey and therapeutic, somewhat like Sun Araw in that respect but a lot more based around synths and electronics. In Pinq Drinq a euphoric chord sequence is presented as an increasingly degrading wall of crackle which builds to Fuck Buttons proportions before disintegrating into clicky nothingness before the quiet, modular-heavy bloopscape of ‘Fried Niteshades’ takes us somewhere much less oppressive.It’s cryptic, cerebral stuff, but never boring, and often conjures images in my mind of strange alien landscapes and the clicking, chirruping creatures which populate them. A great mixture of cosmic synth bliss and unpredictable soundscapery.
