Another month, another essential release from Astral Industries. The label’s latest missive comes from DeepChord man Rod Modell and friend Walter Wasacz‘s Shorelights project, a partnership that has previously resulted in two fine albums of soft noise and groovy ambient techno.
Their latest missive comprises of two lengthy and undeniably immersive tracks that combine atmospheric field recordings (babbling brooks, crackling radio static etc.) with heavily processed electronic textures, slow-burn synthesizer melodies and chords so enveloping you could probably use them as a blanket. It’s hard to get a handle on just how seductive and soothing the album is from the brief clips showcased here, but we can guarantee that Bioluminescence is a hazy, horizontal treat from start to finish.
