Steve Hauschildt - Tragedy & Geometry (Kranky)

Steve Hauschildt - Tragedy & Geometry (Kranky) Comentários: Since Emeralds became public property some time last year, Mark McGuire and John Elliott have unleashed a hefty number of solo and extra-curricular records, but the band's third member, Steve Hauschildt, has remained pretty quiet. Now he breaks the silence with this lovely 12-track collection, an epic synthesizer suite (what else??) that pays tribute to Greek myth and French artist Charles Meynier. It scales some heights of almost obscene beauty - 'Blue Marlin' and 'Peroxide' in particular will have you levitating - and while its arpeggiated post-kosmische tropes are largely a familiar bag, there's an honesty and acuity to Hauschildt's vision which makes T&G a fresh and hugely fulfilling listen. Listen out especially for 'Overnight Venusian' - a pulsing urban synth noir that conjures Vangelis and early C2 before dissolving into a delicious coda of astral ambience. via boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]
