Boomkat Product Review:
Chicago-based sound artist Liai buries subtle dub rhythms in shimmering slicks of fourth world-inspired rose scented oil - one for fans of the Exael, bblisss, Pendant axis.
Liai grew up in rural Missouri, and reinterprets these open-landscaped beginnings on "Pome". There's a sense of Malick-esque wonder as gaseous atmospheres are cracked by zither prangs and echoing percussion on 'Imprince' - the chimes are sacred almost, letting the past seep into the present and the organic inform the electronic. Liai's fourth world influence pokes above water on 'Sunspilt Overand' when the track boils over into a rhythmic mantra, that sloshes comfortably over scratchy ASMR patters and pleasingly dissonant pads.
There's plenty of music that inhabits this space right now - all you have to do is take one look at the Quiet Time catalog - but Liai separates himself by adding a poetic sense of restraint and calm. His use of spindly metallic instrumentation, which he shrouds in cautious electronics, gives a level of illusory confusion that's almost narcotic. Quite lovely.
