Boomkat Product Review:
Computer musician Erik Schoster's first He Can Jog album for Nomadic Kids Republic is also the last under this moniker. 'Norwood, Wisconsin' blurs the borders of warm analog drone and ecstatic electronic pop with a steady, knowing hand over three extended tracks. The twenty minute 'Gather/Burn/Echo' layers tingling frequencies until the density reaches critical mass and bursts into an open-ended song structure free to contract and expand at will, while 'Pippi' adheres to a more neo-classical structure of frayed piano notes and electro-acoustic detailing. Finally 'Company' is more concerned with slow, glacially cumulating drones and tempered analog noise.
