- Object Is A Navigator by Luke Abbott
1 review. Write a review for us »
Loving this new Luke Abbott 12”, he’s another consummate player in the melodic electronica field that consistently delivers the goods. The title track opens proceedings, this piece being a densely layered fizzing bloop-fest featuring strange rhythmic patterns, fine acidic bubbling, constantly evolving off-beats and a tense enigmatic atmosphere that constantly builds towards something potentially awesome but prefers to tease rather than splatter your mind across the nearest wall.
‘Object is a Navigator’ works more as a moody travelogue than any kind of dancefloor ripper and is all the more compulsively brilliant for all its understated majesty. ‘New Buildings’ continues in this implicit vein, coming at you with a skippy kosmische vibe and absorbing aquatic themes. I can hear distinct similarities to his past work, not to mention the whole Holden/Fake/Border Community lot he shares certain aural passions with.
This spacious, engrossing sound continues over the subsequent side two, another three tunes infused with dream-like distant melodies, playful, obscure beats and gently emotive synth-lines. Concluding this neat EP is a track called ‘Overgrown’ that features a rumbling, rolling techno beat-floor that gives way to a glade full of strangely wistful glistening synth chimes. Nice work.
