This one took a long time to post because I got lost in some sort of aural K-hole listening to this album on repeat.
I’ll be honest with you. I don’t really know what the true difference between Carbon Based Lifeforms and Sync24 is, from a musical perspective. In any case, Daniel Segerstad’s solo work as Sync24 is strong as ever: thematic, driving, spacious, experiemental, and truly sublime. The only thing that’s a shame about this album is that I can’t play it for you on OEM in whole. It is a cinematic story told in sequences, synths, guitar arpeggiations, whispers, and robotic spasms. This album is a true joy from one of the strongest members of the Ultimae Records roster.
