Fans of Broadcast, the Ghost Box label, Daphne Oram, Maston and BBC Radiophonic stuff will enjoy this three track 7" of electronic psychedelia. It's full of fizzy synths, hazy vocals and all manner of special effects including a rather odd robotic vocal that appears half way through. Hey, it's the future!

Oh you just love your Broadcast-sounding shit don’t you? Well here is some more of it on this three track 7” which delves deep into that 60’s referencing retro-futurist sounds with lots of analogue-y special effects made by people who have surely heard a few BBC Radiophonic records in their time.
The opening ‘Monolith’ has a really great wandering, druggy melody, even when they turn the vocoder on. Reminds me a lot of forgotten French lot Fugu, The New Lines or Maston, that type of thing. A man sings and you can imagine both protagonists wearing white laboratory coats as they tinker away with their synths. The B side ‘Tire-Moi De Mes Reues’ is a lolloping thing full of blooping synths and eerie psych-y vocals. Not unlike Nick Nicely actually. Again, they remember to bring an insidious melody to the lava lamp party which is a good thing indeed.
There's another song, the final ‘Astral Projections’ which is the regulation oscillating instrumental full of weird "tomorrows world" synths and special effects. Great stuff all round.
