Galcher… Lustwerk! Every time I see this guy’s name written down I suffer from an uncontrollable compulsion to say it out loud, mimicking that robotic French tag from his breakthrough Blowing Up The Workshop mix. Try it! It’s fun! Anyway, this is taken from a new Explorations in Analog Synthesis collection (Volume II, funnily enough) where Moog have asked a load of Very Good Producers to demonstrate the “powerful analog sound and sonic possibilities Moog Sound Studio offers”. Each track was built around the Moog Mother-32, DFAM, and Subharmonicon included in each artist’s Moog Sound Studio, and the full seven track EP includes music from Boy Harsher, Hannah Peel and others and is well worth checking out.
This sounds as if it’s been lifted straight from a Zero 7 / Air collaborative album circa 2001 that never saw the light of day, and I am fully on board with it. If you like floaty vocals and meandering percussion over a fuzzy background of synths, you’re in luck! Taken from their new album The Main Thing which I’m yet to listen to as I’ve had this on loop for about half an hour. And I’m even posting it on a Friday: how’s that for synergy?
