Canada's Christopher Bissonnette has opted to limit himself to a single home-built synth on this hazy LP of languorous drones and tones, in search of, in his own words, "a more tactile approach to sound generation". I'm having a nice time with it. It's languid and quite cosmic but still with that '70s-ish feeling of physicality to it, man and machine in eerie unison.

Perhaps because I've watched too many sci-fi films, it sounds like a sci-fi film to me. You can totally imagine these washes of droning, throbbing synthesizer and subtle buried melodies blasting from your surround sound while an ominous spaceship glides across your TV. I don't have an awful lot to say about it because there's only so many drone records you can review before you dry up a bit, but these are mysterious and inviting tone meditations made by a fleshy warm man and a cold metal machine.
