Boomkat Product Review:
Fresh from “sampler” contributions on the amazing Oï les Ox album for The Death of Rave, Furtherset blesses -ous with an immersive suite of tantalising, expressive synthesis landing somewhere between Lorenzo Senni, Pita and 0PN
‘To Live Tenderly Anew’ is the Italian artist’s first solo shot since 2018 and most substantial since a 2015 album written circa his time at the RBMA classes in Rome. It’s not hard to hear how his music resonates with classical Italian renaissance music in the same way as Lorenzo Senni, but there’s also more bite and nervy energy to his music that we’re keen to hear more of after ingesting this one.
The rushy flux of ‘The Logic of a Secret’ is a great place to dive in and find your feet upended, while ‘The Expanding Drama’ betrays an absorbing taste for edge-of-dissonance tunings, and ‘A Prelude to Infinite Directions’ could almost be an expanded detail of an 0PN tapestry. We’re also really feeling the weightless, beat-less rave roller ‘Uncoordinated Delicate Perfection’ calling to mind Pita meets AYYA, and the adrenochrome energy of ‘Choirs of Deception and Truth’ points to much grander ideas on the horizon.
One to keep a close ear on!
