Barnett is Alex Barnett, primarily a solo artist, with releases on Catholic Tapes, DRAFT, Nihilist and others. Coloccia was a founding member of Everlovely Lightningheart, and is perhaps best known as one half of Mamiffer. When they got together it was MOIDER (murder)......well perhaps not but they have created a nice pastoral synth album which will appeal to fans of the myriad of re-issued 70’s synth opuses as well as a more subtle kind of late night paranoid driftiness.
Although opener ‘Harbor’ hurts my ears, ‘Switch’ swiftly sooths them again with some beautiful plaintive synth work. It swoops, it swoons, it drifts. They use old school Moog and Korg synths to produce downbeat synth minimalism which is subtle and slow moving but with additional scatter from AM radio and seemingly found field recordings the album creates a subtle, eerie mood occasionally disrupted by bursts of noise and discordant figures lurking in the shadows.
