8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 11 December 2012
Well I’m not sure how to pronounce this record’s name, although the opening track is called ‘Litany’...so I suppose it would follow that the artist would be pronounced ‘Daallins’. Nothing to do with indie tweesters Allo Darlin’, though, this is actually Jon Porras from Barn Owl in disguised as an amorphous mass of technoid future-drift.
It very much seems like a record of two halves. There’s four tracks on here and the first two share this same distant murky throbbing feel that’s quite seductive but always blurry, while on the flip it’s paired with some crisper trebly synth arpeggios in ‘Entropy’ and ‘Espejo’. The former starts to get quite blissed out and (bv?)dubby towards the end while the latter opts for a chilly Carpenter vibe. Overall what we’re looking at here is four quality tracks of dystopian post-techno haziness that’s certainly worth a listen. First edition of 400 so if you want it don't wait around.
