Epoch is the final chapter in Tycho’s trilogy of ridiculously accessible indietronica albums. Moving on from Dive, through Awake, the Californian has reached new heights in upbeat, optimistic head-bobbing songs that float on spacey synthesizers and tightly and perfectly delayed guitars. Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 19 January 2017

I see Tycho has finally finished watering down his new album 'Beige'. 

It's a funny joke but not as funny as the first time I heard it in the Onion used to describe Maroon 5. Also it's rather cruel on Tycho whose only crime is to make music that will be listenable for anyone who already owns a set of ears. He makes ridiculously accessible electronica which sits nicely in the background neither offending nor screaming "look at me". So it could be just as much part of the background noise here at Normans as Phil mumbling on about the inbox.

What he have here is lighter than air electronics for anyone who finds Bonobo a little too soulful. It skitters along and if you let it would soundtrack your life positively. That time you finished the 5k run without throwing up, the time you woke up without feeling crushed by life, the time you looked up from your phone to see a sunset all could be perfectly soundtracked by this. He blends driving pass patterns, glittering guitars and groovy real drums with pleasant synths to come up with a series of fizzing pieces of feel good electronica. Comparisons could be made to Ulrich Schnauss and particularly U2. 'Slack' could well be what would happen if the Edge made an album with Jean Michelle Jarre. 

I'm pretty happy for Tycho to exist. He does me no harm whatsoever and if this soundtracks your world and makes you feel better about things then I'm glad. It's well produced, tight as a nut electronica which for however long I'll live I'll never be able to recall a note of.
