Boomkat Product Review:
Isan (compared to isdn, anything but digital) love old analogue electronic devices to make music, instruments from a time when synthesizers were developed in attics, a time long before hundreds of coding-slaves would program new organ-presets. Equipment you not only need screwdrivers for, but also furniture polish. Synthesizers and drumboxes which were affordable even when they were manufactured and which rockbands with mellotrons and modular walls laughed at. Over the last few years, Robin and Antony Isan proved that these machines are capable of great things too. With numerous releases - preferrably on 7" of course - they managed to book reservations for front row seats in our record racks. Little melodies appear, dragging you along on their journey towards dawn, slowly unveiling their real inner-self, and banishing evil ghosts. 'Lucky cat' starts where 'salamander', isan's last album on morr music, stopped. In a way. In reality, it is completely different. well, you must listen to it for yourself. it is just that everything sounds more self-evident, lighter, more familiar, more personal and especially more lovable and adorable. It almost sounds like the happy studio cat switched on all of the machines and played, while antony and robin were out buying milk from the cornershop.'Lucky Cat' contains even more 'man-on-the-moon-melodies', more 'rocket-lift-off-basses' and at least a gallon of this mysterious isan-mixture which makes 'lucky cat' even more shimmering and warm than could possibly be described here. When studio cats are happy and drumboxes can see the moon, nothing can go wrong. Utterly Lovely.
