Album Review
Reviewed 2014-04-03 
Sparkling galaxies of lush echoing synth hypnosis from prolific Russian tape cassette artist.
A bubbly, kaleidoscopic journey through synthesizer heaven. Imagine Philip Glass scoring Adventure Time on a morphine drip and you’ll have a rough idea. Play any/all <= it’s THAT good.
RIYL Hobo Cubes “Timeless / Mindless”, Sundrips, Eno, Laraaji

1. (2:42) short introductory theme, some echoing voices and opening strains of synth melody
2. (4:40) glacial drone and haunting, blissful waves of sunshine
3. (4:26) windy, plaintive and minimal, a lonely wandering pulse
4. (5:08) ooh, lovely! Gentle chirping melodies, probably what video game music sounds like in heaven
5. (8:36) cinematic, gentle undertow of drone
6. (8:37) soundtrack to an imaginary cartoon snowstorm, your school has been taken over by Yetis and it’s a snow day forever
7. (6:48) minimal and eerie yet calming, adrift on a melting glacier
8. (6:11) soundtrack to the northern lights, if you close your eyes you can almost see them
9. (5:25) stately closing theme, Tangerine Dream-y, bladerunnercore at its finest
