Boomkat Product Review:
Mancunion electronica mavens Marconi Union drop their latest album for the consistently excellent Bine label, fashioning a Japanese-themed suite of minimalist ambience that's resplendent with a hi-tech sheen. Richly immersive soundscapes are embellished with micro-beats and glitch percussion reminiscent of Frank Bretschneider's impeccable rhythmic designs on opener 'Ginza District', and the album just continues to enthrall with its hi-fi, glistening tones: 'Lost In Neon' supplies tiny rhythms like the patter of rainfall while 'Hatsunori' offers a more propulsive sound, spurred on by Monolake styled dark cityscapes and economical, well-oiled drums. Right up to the awesome filter-sweeping final piece 'Temperature Drop' this record makes for a brilliant example of atmospheric home listening, merging luscious ambient constructions with ear-catching beat designs in all the right ways. Highly Recommended.
