Moon Spirits Records Sirius Isness Resolution Of Duality CD Stylee: Full On Groovy Gear Squelchy Tribal Psy 1. 2012 Tepoz Trippers 2. Out Of Reality 3. Osaka Blues 4. Spheres 5. Irrational Substance 6. The Good Man 7. Living Memories 8. Secret Vision 9. Resolution Of Duality I typed a massive track by track review for this album and then the board became unavailable, and I lost the lot when I went back it was gone, doh. So here is most of it typed in again with a little help from listening to the CD and jogging my memory! 1. Lumpy Basslines, and Growly 303 lines switching from straight to arpegiatted, adding some higher pitched melody and going for it! 2. Go on then heads down start, quick tribal perc patterns fast beast here, introducing some melody at 3 mins then calling it back up to good use, light enuff to take the edge off. Nice pads and squiggly break at 5 mins that drops back into perfection. 3. Phat clear bass and kick off beat action to start, Guitar licks to build, hooking up with a cyber barking hound to good effect. 3:40 and flip it into some serious (sorry sirius) astral plane melodies, that are well diverse and a beautiful patch build on that and you got yourself a tune alright! quality. 4. Wicked use of female vox fractured up, breaks into nice deep groovy stuff, really textured funky break followed through nice and slow until it kicks off. Random bleeps fly off in the final section messing with the vox, and the noises just compliment and bounce 5. Quick bassline, the scene is set with some high pitched sears and the tribal percs goes like this. Atmospheres and crowds in a clear spot, put exactly where they want you in the picture, Flipping to a harder edged sound and adding some strong synth lines. Adding some electro lunacy around 5 mins that grows before desolving back into melody with perfect timing!! (My Fav) 6. Working the album up and down just right, this one starts more groovy funky for a while tinkly stuff builds in, but watch out around 3 mins apparantely its "the drugs", sounds dark to start, but adds some great fun bouncy elements that carry the track a treat. Searing high melodies and good times. Grooving it out again with some distant ethnic culture up to 6 mins "They were right!!" 7. Well textured drums and stretched out vox stuff, nice bits of delay. Not as dynamic as some of there tracks, good standard but draws ideas out instead of the quality switching. Not my fav, bit samey, possibly an older production? 8. Starts meaning full and postive, deep atmos, stirring up distant melodies and power 2:30 drops it into some keyboard wizarding which is strong and floaty. Analog monsters creep in for a short time, longer noises play off each other until it builds and builds. at 6:30 the right melody kicks in like it was always ment to be there and it worx! 9. Good Question! Great Start (again), Loads of feeling. Bit slower this one, synced into that deep groove. 2:30 and they start to show the melody, develops well keeping diversity and feeling fresh, playing off energetic sounds but still feeling soft. At 4:30 they show you more, Saving up some of the best melodies for the end, A beginning a middle and an end! Some of the bits in this album are a bit samey, But in many ways this album is more than the sum of it parts. Some of the parts in it are what I call standard psy type noises, the fast nagging sort of the thing you hear alot of, but lots of it is really nice deep tribal atmospheres, with wicked interesting dynamic (but not cheesy) melodies rising from the tune and unusual noises to compliment them, smart organic incidental noises kind of captured in time. quirky off kilter piano, proper instruments, string licks, and some natural touches, I would really like to hear some of these guys music if they hadn't listen to psy, I think it would still be real intelligent good shit. Although it is wicked psy album, it would almost be better if they didn't tie it in so closely... The basslines work a treat and the melody and the kind of trippy edgey atmosphere is brillant. There strengths lie in flipping things round perfectly in time. moving from slower to faster parts and switching lots but still sounding just right. They have oodles of super speed groovy tribal tom tom perc and drums. I like this CD loadz. Go BUY it, if it starts sounding a bit samey by track 7 then skip it I rekon, Read the stuff on the inside about "Love and Compassion" "Transmutation into unity" and "Taking a trip down to earth", Love is a good thing as is your otherworldly music, but I think you have been at the space dust!! LOL Oh and brillant Artwork I was going to review Red Tip World, and Usual Suspects 2 on Solstice but I'm a bit typed out now.
