Boomkat product review for:

the crystal ark (gavin russom) - The Crystal Ark

**Double disc housed in metallic screen-printed heavy card wrap-around with download code redeemable from the label** Gavin Russom and Viva Ruiz' Crystal Ark slides into the warm waters of psychedelic wave house on their maiden album voyage. It's a colourful, richly layered affair, flush with Russom's multi-tiered analogue synth arrangements and knotted with a lattice of rippling, shuffling, copulating drum machine patterns crossing time and space between downtown disco-not-disco pop, psychedelic Belgian techno and Balearic slow burners.
