Playful synth experiments from the eccentric Com Truise. Silicon Tare on vinyl 12” is the artist’s first release for almost two years, and his sound is as off-kilter as ever. 1980s pop music is warped and accelerated into a queasy blend of synth-pop and shiny house. Com Truise has a knack for complex interlinked melodies that are almost unbearably catchy.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 13th December 2016
Com Truise [Seth Haley] is a master of cool 80s synths and his understanding and reframing of the era is genius. While Silicon Tare tries to move Com Truise a little deeper into EDM territory, the repetitiveness and dubstep impulse propels the songs forward at the expense of form, giving "Diffraction" fine moments, but making "Forgive" feel rushed. Slowed down, beautiful melodies and sonic shapes lurk. Elsewhere, much of the EP sounds like ground already covered on In Decay and Wave 1, although I'm not fussed about that.
