I was sold on this one pretty easy...The Duke St. Workshop are a mysterious entity to me but from the get go these horror soundtrack meets library music meets Tangerine Dream jamz are ticking all the Li’l Biz boxes. ‘Lexicon Of Paragon Pines’’ lo-fi, bedroom production makes them all the more inviting by not overdoing it with flashy details and instead treating us to the distilled version of these treasured sounds.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that ‘Lexicon...’ verges on tribute/pastiche but not at all in an off-putting way and, if anything, reflects the author's respect for the source material and the artists who made them great. And just incase you need to know who I’m talking about - Vangelis, Fabio Frizzi, Alan Howarth, John Carpenter, Can, Goblin, etc.
There’s plenty of spooky-ass horror/sci-fi shiz to get to grips with here with 21 tracks covering everything from unnerving mini piano interludes and synth based nostalgia fragments to full on epic main themes giving it an authentic OST vibe of it’s own. It’s a classic case of a someone writing a soundtrack regardless of whether the accompanying film even exists. Wouldn’t mind knowing who was behind this little beauty, but it’s also nice not to know...keeps that mystery intact. Excellent little outing.

This is really good. I don't know why it's such a short run, as this quality stuff. Very atmospheric, but never boring. Lovely stuff. More please.
