Headphone Commute Review
The Ebertbrothers‘ second release on Mindwaves Music has only four tracks and three remixes, with contributions from Karsten Pflum, Badun, and Lackluster. Wait… who? I completely forgot about Esa Juhani Ruoho (that’s Lackluster to you) whom I’ve been following since the early days of Merck, Monotonik and Psychonavigation. Great score for Axel and Michael Ebert, and an excellent addition to their Engine Eyes EP. Following their last full-length album, Susten Pass (Mindwaves, 2011), the brothers have slowed the rhythm a bit, dropping the kaleidoscopic confetti of IDMesque abstraction and settling into a glitchy downtempo vibe. The music is given time to breathe and develop, allowing for complex organisms to evolve into spacious and warm depths. There’s plenty of experimental elements to let your cerebral claws to hang on to. The intelligent sound design is complimented by melodic excursions that move from abstruse images to concrete, evoking sparkling cinematic illustrations as previously implemented by the brothers in their visual works. Speaking of Mindwaves… I also recommend you check out releases by Badun, whom you should know from Schematic, and Karsten Pflum, with releases on Hymen and Ad Noiseam. A nice independent Berlin-based label you should keep your eye on.
