Boomkat product review for:

forma - Forma

Spectrum Spools, the bespoke imprint run by Emeralds' John Elliott through Editions Mego in Vienna, is going from strength to strength. Latest to join its ranks are the Brooklyn minimal synth trio Forma, whose debut LP is a self-styled tribute - and testament - to the enduring power of kosmische. Sumptuously melodic, with flights of improvisational fancy nicely anchored by taut, repetitive drum structures, it's hard not to fall in love with this record. We're particularly smitten with 'Forma 237A'; with its hollow, heavily-dubbed tom sounds, and the bass-heavy dronescape 'Forma 247' (catchy titles, we know). What really distinguishes Forma from the million devotees of German electronic music is their bold and often unorthodox use of rhythm, at times tending towards metronomic Kraftwerkian synth-pop, at others - as on closer 'Forma 237B' - towards something even more viscous and otherworldly. Fans of Emeralds, Gavin Russom, Cluster and those of you who simply can't get enough of cycling, kraut-influenced analogue electronics, your latest fix is here.
