Boomkat Product Review:
With releases to date on Planet Mu and DUB (see our recent single of the Week – ‘Cenny’) to name but a few, this debut album for the Neo Ouija label finds Reimer Eising’s sound evolving yet again. With a playful, almost childlike theme running across 12 tracks, an open-aired innocence imbues the opening ‘So Obviously Vulnerable’ with naïve playground abandon that permeates much of the album, even as it strides towards fatty beats and deeper constructions. ‘Her Thin Voice’ glides with a Plaid-ish melodicism that develops in classic electronic tradition, containing the kind of heartfelt transitions that are designed to both uplift and introspect. The echoing distant break of ‘A Novel In Key’ solidifies the Plaid comparisons, equal parts playful and intricate, the theme here is very much one of life-affirmation and childishness, as such making for an album that defies the trend for brooding darkness and, in the process, succeeds in endearing itself throughout each one of the tracks on offer. Heartwarm yum.
