“Home” sets the tone for the EP as lush filtered pads climb atop Tellus’s energetic yet restrained drum work. “Jovian Dreams” showcases his penchant for subtle melodies paired with a sparing use of breaks. The title track is an exercise in restraint as distant pianos flutter in a foggy haze of pads and atmospherics. Closing track “Lens Flare” walks along a path of staccato rhythms, punctuated by stretched vocals and Tellus’s trademark synths. Shrouded In Sun is a truly memorable EP which showcases an artist completely in his element.
Shrouded In Sun EP is available worldwide on Oct. 22nd.
Method One graces Modern Conveniences with his most diverse EP to date. Running the gamut from autonomic, to atmospheric drum & bass, to music that defies labels, this is surely some of the artist’s most prolific work.
The title track harkens back to the heyday of autonomic, a proper 170 bpm excursion laden with Method One’s trademark synthesizer work. “Sunspots” drops the tempo for a retro jungle journey while “Boreal” explores the atmospheric sounds of his earlier work. “Silhouettes” is a cinematic post-rock expedition through sand-covered passages. An end credits-style closer and a truly fitting end to a remarkable EP.
Planetarium EP is available worldwide on Nov. 19th.
