Second release for Lowman, from Chicago, USA: it smokes like progressive and jazz music, processed with math-rock dogma (Bourge, Some Song That Is), a gray cloud created in a lab and frozen with midi keyboard and vocoder (Cuts Like A Knife, Stout Leroy), then later described to media with high lyrism and deserved satisfaction (Ly Roo Kay, Half To Love, and the trascendental buzz of Gnawsh).
I can't find much more to say, such this album is squared into soundscapes and orchestral crescendo (strings and wind instruments merge with electronics), shaped perfect for the hi-fi system of a record shop, yet, not that memorable to me. Sort of Tortoise meeting Valeot records.

Secondo disco per Lowman, da Chicago, USA: fuma come musica jazz e progressive, elaborata nel dogma del math-rock (Bourge, Some Song That Is),una nuvola grigia creata in laboratorio, congelata con tastiera midi e vocoder (Cuts Like A Knife, Stout Leroy), quindi poi resa nota ai media con alto lirismo e meritata soddisfazione (Ly Roo Kay, Half To Love, il trascendentale ronzio di Gnawsh).
Non riesco a trovare molto altro da dire, tanto questo album è quadrato nei soundscapes e crescendo orchestrale (corde e fiati bilanciati con elettronica), tutto fatto perfetto per l'impianto stereo di un negozio di dischi, ma non del tutto memorabile, a livello personale. Sorta di Tortoise che incontrano la Valeot records.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
