Boomkat Product Review:
A highlight of Opal Tapes' fifth batch is Holovr's debut mini-album, 'Lunar Lake'. It's a lo-fi and cinematic trip urged by rippling machine pulses and awash with gauzy chords and pads, and could easily be taken as a not-too-distant and rather mysterious cousin to 1991's 'High-Tech High-Life'. Our highlights have to be the extended part 'II', summoning soundscape visions for teary eyed cyborgs or the rugged, uptempo flux of 'V' with its rattling machine rhythms and lysergic synth melts reminding of everything from classic AFX to Marco Bernardi's 'Junkie Bastard'. Recommended!
