Boomkat Product Review:
Kaleidoscope curator, Patten returns on this lushly disorienting and super handsome EP for Warp. Since dosing the waters with his unpronounceable 'GLAQJO XAACSSO' LP for No Pain In Pop in 2011, Patten's stepped back from releasing his own material and issued acclaimed and singular works by Sculpture and Karen Gwyer on his Kaleidoscope label in the meantime. On 'Eolian State' we're presented with some 22-minutes of mercurial electronica bending time, space and light in five uniquely elusive grooves fathoming the discordant merry-go-round of 'Aviary' alongside the decelerated swang of 'Towards Infinite Shores', the nexx level Actress-style discombobulation of 'Obsidian Arms (mid-saccade)', and the fractal boogie drift of 'oea/Catalogue'. It's supremely heady stuff, highly recommended if you like Oneohtrix Point Never, Actress, Wanda Group or Vlek Records.
