Artist: MOTION SICKNESS OF TIME TRAVEL
Title: The Perennials
Format: LP
Label: Boomkat
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Motion Sickness Of Time Travel makes fuzzy eyes for the dancefloor on her sublime debut for Boomkat Editions. The Perennials is Rachel Evans eagerly-awaited follow-up to her eponymous LP for Spectrum Spools, channeling her celestial energies into concise and emotive ambient-pop arrangements on the cusp of progressive 90s trance. Taking in a handful of gorgeous songs ranging from pastoral instrumentals to strobing arpeggio surfers and sweeping mini bleep symphonies, she isolates a feeling or vibe hovering between the alien horizons of Tangerine Dream and Laurie Spiegel and the heart-aching cinematic yearn of Angelo Badalamenti and Julee Cruise at their best for David Lynch. From the Icarus-like trance ascension of opener "Efflorescence," she makes a deeply endearing virtue of divining unresolved tension between cosmic ambition and lo-fi willpower, defying its teasing gravity to ride pockets of thermal energy with siren-like chicanery on the radiant "The Reynard and the Vixen," while the neo-tantrik positivism of "Foggy Morning" consolidates the compatible dimensions of Laurel Halo and Suzanne Ciani with bittersweet effect beside the lushly heightened sensuality of "The Chord and the Centre." Ultimately its as close as weve seen MSOTT get to the dancefloor, a direction we reckon she should continue to explore. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alechemy. Limited to 500 individually-numbered copies." -Boomkat.
