Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars "Nocturnal Transmission" is a 31 minute EP from these Electronic wizards from the UK. Hopefully they are getting better weather than we are here in Ontario. I've never seen schools closed and buses cancelled this late in April before. I'm home because I was stuck in my driveway. This is their latest EP and one that has really impressed me over the last month or so. I like the variety on this one as well.

"Nocturnal Transmissions" opens with faint sounds then we can hear a phone ringing before the sax arrives in atmosphere. This continues throughout and it works. "Deus Ex Machina" features the sound of seagulls and waves as electronics arrives and buzzes away and synths sweep in over top. The synths stop as the tempo picks up and drums join in. The synths are back. Great sounding track.

"Ketamine Dream Machine" opens with growling synths and windy sounds that blow across the soundscape. Some dissonant sax too comes in over top. A change before 3 minutes as the sax leaves and electronics, synths and drums lead the way. It's kind of catchy after 4 minutes with the beats and growly synths.

"Aurora" is the longest track at 10 1/2 minutes. It's kind of eerie sounding and dark throughout. It settles back after 5 1/2 minutes but it's still haunting as we get percussion and atmosphere. Love the choir-like sounds 7 1/2 minutes in. "Blues For Pluto" starts out with spacey winds before piano and atmosphere take over. I like this it's different. Drums join in as well. Quite the moving piece for me.

A solid 4 stars and a great place to start if you want to check out their sound. Better yet, their album "Trip Hazard" is an incredible recording.
