- Born Blonde by Cloudland Canyon
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 15 November 2012
Cloudland Canyon’s last 12”, on the Great Pop Supplement and now sadly long gone, was crammed full of blissed out cosmic synth action crammed with spacious analogue drones and hypnotic modular burblings. Those of you who enjoyed that little astral snacksickle will no doubt be salivating over this one already, since the trio are laying down two ten minute jams which take us on a whole new Emeraldsy space voyage.
The pace is quite lively on side A’s ‘Born Blonde’, with busy arpeggios repeating all over the place, drifting into a kind of Kosmonaut-meets-Egyptology droning layered electrokraut trance-inducer before an unexpected cold wavey section towards the end of the first track with blurred vocals over a pulsating bass loop.Flip it and ‘Sea Cycles’ has some more bubbling modular flotsam which is abruptly joined by an aggressive, pumping beat for a hard, dark techno stomper which has prompted our Kim to start singing Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’ over the top. On the whole this EP seems a lot more dancefloor-friendly whilst still maintaining the focus on cosmic synth that you loved about them in the first place. Pretty cool.
