Adam Feingold (1080p/Apron Records) brings cosmic ambience, and a chilled balearic tone to his experimental house as Ex-Terrestrial. It’s blissed out, odd, futuristic and just damn nice. Chilled vibes on the sea of tranquility shores. Features saxophonist Emmanuel Thibau. Six track 12” on Temple.
This one has sold out on all formats. Sorry!
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 September 2017
I can't quite get my head round what this is. It's simple rudimentary synth and drum machine soft shoe shuffle with the added 'bonus' of a saxophone at work. The sax doesn't appear until second track bowed glass and I have to admit it's quite effective. The song reminds me of throwing open the curtains on a sparkling sunny morning and playing a saxophone at the window. The music has a very soundtracky feel - I'm thinking Miami Vice, Midnight Caller. It's late at night in your office - you are trying to finish a case, the neon lights twinkle through the blinds. Someone is hoovering.
I've just seen Ex Terrestrial's previous record described as chillbient. A word that makes me want to eat my own head off. But it kind of is - its laid back twinkly and disconcerting. You just know that something terrible is going to happen in that industrial unit.
Good but...and I never thought I'd say this....more sax?
