Boomkat Product Review:
Jeff McIlwain re-emerges from his production slumber to deliver more aural candy for the Ghostly family on this new Lusine album.
Further settling into his latter-day groove as a producer of well-polished pop-tinged electronics, the Lusine of nearly 20 years ago has not disappeared altogether, the mechanics of his early IDM, ambient and downtempo productions still drive the creative process on ‘Sensorimotor’.
There is a more introspective yearn to this album however, a sensation most apparent in the numerous vocal contributions from Jeff and his wife, Sarah McIlwain, along with Vilja Larjosto and Benoît Pioulard. The latter’s manipulated vocals feature on the sub-Burial, hushed flutter of Witness which is destined to get synced by the CSI franchise sometime soon.
