Boomkat Product Review:
Ace 2nd album from Glasgow-based digital artist, Konx-Om-Pax, including cameo appearances from Laurel Halo and Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite (both of whom he's previously designed sleeves for). Following the noise sculptures of last years 'Optimo Sessions', 'Light In Extension' - a reference to the mythical Egyptian etymology of his name - is a more varied and sublimely textured (yet occult-infused) collection of eight tracks in just over 25 minutes. It covers phantastical interzones between the epic choral drone wormhole of 'Halo Ritual' featuing HIT's Laurel, to the glistening geomteric ice cap melodies of '7th Dimension', into the Hype Williams-esque vignettes 'Chevy Chase Mega Looper' and 'Why Aren't You Here', to the intergalactic distress signals of 'Room With A View' and the dynamic Autechre-isms of 'Total Protonic Reversal'. There's really not a lot of albums around that can do that without sounding compromised but Konx-Om-Pax's viscerally synaesthetic tones and textures are spellbinding to behold. Highly Recommended!
