ALBUM REVIEW: Lone 'Galaxy Garden' out 7 May on R&S Records

Been a while since a I posted a review. I'd love to say that it's because I've been listening to piles of shit records and nothing has been worth writing about but it's simply not the case. There is tons of great music out there right now and the new album from Lone is another fine example of what is turning out to be a great year for new creativity.

Galaxy Garden is an appropriate title for what is a very other-worldy highly electronic experience. There are tough basslines aplenty here, as well as a hark back to the old skool techno classics. I'm referring to the stupendous 'Crystal Caverns 1991' one of the stand out tracks on a predominantly instrumental album. The keyboard riffs on this are insane and really hark back to some sweaty field in the countryside or an abandoned warehouse somewhere filled with kids off their nuts on ecstasy and god knows what else. Those kids will be in their late 30's and 40's now, if they made it that far. I wonder what they would make of it?

This is not an time machine or rave emulator. There is plenty of freshness on here. For something a bit more chilled and a tasty vocal check out the last track 'Spirals'. Expect songs on here to feature in TV commercials or film productions sometime soon. This is high level shit.
