The four-track “Exile” is a jolly nice and solid album full of spatial, multi-layered sequential electronics accompanied by vintage textures. The musics dynamic and lovely pulsating yet circular patterns along some moody textural parts sketched out here create a recurring tantalizing effect on each piece.
This works out especially well on the 21-minute opener “Ex Tempora” and the energetic title piece following in its footsteps. “Still Alive” evolves into a dynamic ride of constantly tweaked sequences after a psychedelic-ish intro, soon spreading a sonic perfume quite reminiscent of TD’s “Encore” but redressed in a contemporary fashion. “Ostinato” starts and ends with a gentle soundscape but is set in motion by quite heavy, fast-forward sequencer patterns after the 4-minute mark while a freaky solo surfaces briefly now and then.
In the end I’m not sure about this final track, but the previous solid pieces make “Exile” worth investigating.
