Kuala Lumpur’s Euseng Soto has been playing with his electroacoustic instruments since 2005 and here he is with ‘Sub:Side’, his fifth record to date as Flica. Soto’s work is highly melodic and can push on at a fair lick -- as he does on ‘Waver’, where notes jump out as if we were on the verge of Spring, or something; mostly, though, I’m picturing leaves turning colour at the end of a dusty summer, then hints of green shoots just peeking out from the ground, a glimpse of a squirrel’s tail just flashing from behind a beech tree then vanishing again.
This is romantic stuff: a potent antidote to the line-walking minimalism of Nils Frahm's latest record. It’s music to soundtrack the transitions between seasons: hints of melancholy -- as Haushcka, for example, is wont to do in his more subdued moods -- but all is tinged with expectancy and optimism. With a hint of Eno-like ambience briefly introducing the track 'Wednesday'. Music for checking the receding ice formations outside your window to.
