PULSE EMITTER- NEBULA
SPIRITUAL VISTAS (CYLINDRICAL HABITAT MODULES, 2011)

Have to be honest and say that I haven’t totally connected with Daryl Groetsch’s synth explorations the way many people have, but this closing track from last year’s Spiritual Vistas LP is undeniably hypnotic and evocative. There’s a creeping sense of finality here—a kind of melancholy that also acknowledges that the worst is somehow yet to come—which is heightened by those rubbery arpeggios and the lucid arrangement that allows each layer to hang suspended in space.
