A six track release, which fills the room with slowly revolving electronica and guitar, with a submerged vocal enticing the audience – and minds of diving headlong in to the tightly packed petals of a Carnation to explore each fold in greater detail.

The songs each offer a different angle of dappled shadow which hold the attention, much like a hummingbird studiously supping nectar from delicate, complex, yet sweetly scented flowers.

Saturday is the opening track.

Flexagon – The Gift – Single Review

Flexagon the ambientwave project from Guernsey released the single The Gift on the 4th.

Flexagon - The Gift
Flexagon

As always, the music, reflects of a spacious and mind-boggling universe enticing the listener in to its cavernous spaces to explore the fractals of expanding electronica.

The Gift (available on bandcamp) refers to a musical instrument – a toombi – which was won in a raffle and gifted to Flexagon.

With no previous experience of the one stringed instrument, Flexagon, has taken the unusual option of using a bow to deliver a track in which the distinctive string can be readily identified, muted though it is under the rich tapestry of hypnotic synthesis, to create a just over eight minutes composition which holds the listener transfixed.

The album (available on bandcamp) is the final chapter in a trio of releases, spaced out since September 2017 with each having a different view of a self-reflection.

Three, Fever, being the most groove-laden of the trilogy, affords the greatest contrast between the deep cuts of the songs and the distinctive high pitch of vocal.

Moog Jam 1 is the third track.

Surfaced yesterday was the song Doll Witch – as always turn up the speakers and let the windows-frames rattle to their own hearts content.

Pulsing bass-lines and bleeding guitar are harried by impatient drums while the signature vocals snarl in to ears – all for it to fall abruptly in to silence a margin over two minutes after commencing.

Is it too early to be starting the long-list for ‘Track of the year 2019’ – I wonder?
