Album Review
DJ Aporia
Reviewed 2017-08-23 
Light, dreamy krautrock-pop. Synths, guitars, psychedelic flairs in a warm analog sound. Weaver’s vox sound a lot like Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, slowly soaring and very weird. A nice retro outer-space record—highly recommended!

Favorites: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

1. (3:32) H>A>K—Breathy vox, fast arpeggiated aquatic synths.
2. (3:45) *** Did You See Butterflies?—Dreamy krautrock
3. (5:01) ** Modern Kosmology—Calmer, sweet, subdued. Synth loop, slow chugging drums.
4. (5:06) * Slow Motion—Sweet cheerful early summer pop.
5. (4:29) ** Loops in the Secret Society—Strong krautrock, really cool vocal harmonies and loops. Guitar outro.
6. (4:03) ** The Architect—Synth jam, pulsing, futuristic.
7. (3:38) The Lightning Back—Another synthy track, great vox here.
8. (5:13) ** Valley—Slow, heavy, psychedelic folk. Would sound great with the next track
9. (4:38) * Ravenspoint—Spoken vox from Can's Malcolm Mooney about dust and death. Then skittering, atmospheric, avant pop/folk.
10. (4:25) I Wish—Another retro synth track, very 70s, synths get increasingly stranger. Long buzzing finish.
