Boomkat Product Review:
After a sterling turn with Donato Dozzy’s Spazio Disponibile, Grand River’s lush DX7 synth sound flows onto Editions Mego for a real cinematic dream sequence landing somewhere between The Chi Factory and Voices From The Lake
Expanding on the mix of sharply focussed, elegantly airborne arp structures and gauzy ambience in her debut LP ‘Pineapple’ (2018), Dutch-Italian composer Aimée Portioli dilates her sound with a rippling lysergic lushness wavering between quietly ecstatic and introspective on its follow-up ‘Blink a Few Times to Clear Your Eyes’.
Burbling up with ‘80s FM dream synths that race off in like a rushing Kara Lis Coverdale in ‘Side Lengths’, the trip vacillates more panoramic visions like ‘Mr. Speaker’ and the endlessly arcing pads of ‘Canopies’ darker transitional beauties such as ‘Equations for a Falling Body’, and renaissance regression pieces that recall Spencer Clark via Lovisoni / Messina in ‘Gold’, while the final section flourishes in the direction of 0PN’s cinematic winks to Tangerine Dream or the iridescent guitars of Manuel Göttsching.
