- Light Echoes by Steve Moore
More excellent synth baz, this time from from our boi Steve Moore! Cuneiform have quietly (no press campaign as far as I can tell and no vinyl either? - according to their website this came out in late Sept?) put out the follow up to Moore’s ultra luxurious ‘Primitive Neural Pathways’.
Now, if you are familiar with Moore (or his duo with fellow synth obsessive Majeure known as Zombi) you’ll be aware that he knows his way around the genre (and the gear) like no other. He also has all the sickest synths around and is my go-to guy for an authentic ‘70s/’80s synth soundtrack/kosmische experience. ‘Primitive Neural Pathways’ saw Moore verging into a laid back, library music territory with pre-set drum machines and luxurious melodies taking centre stage. Well on ‘Light Echoes’ he goes a step further and dispenses with rhythm boxes all together letting the propulsive arpeggios and sequencers do the rhythm work whilst going full tilt with the blissed out synths giving this album a pure kosmische vibe.
Moore treats us to six beautiful space soundscapes that bring to mind the best of the genre whilst steering clear of the straightforward pastiche or homage that haunts many of his modern day co-conspirators/imitators. A true master. Can’t believe no-one has asked him to score a film yet. The shame.
