Boomkat Product Review:
Pleasantville electronics and piano for fans of Helios, Tycho or Boards of Canada.
LA composer and songwriter James McAlister is best known for his work with Sufjan Stevens, but he's appeared on records with Lorde, Taylor Swift and St. Vincent, among many others. Here he goes it alone on a deeply personal collection of shimmering instrumentals that fit into the hazy, meditative world you might expect to encounter on a Helios record: thick sub bass, emotional piano and the kind of emotive synth pads that Steve Roach has made his calling card over the years.
"Scissortail" is a feel-good record, despite being somewhat melancholy. It's made up of sounds that are engineered to bring a smile to your face alongside a requisite nostalgic tear. The emotional world shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's listened to Sufjan Stevens - there are certainly parallels - but anyone looking for more hazy soundtrack music to wack on in the background that isn't going to have you climbing the walls, this is a safe bet.
