“Drift”, the catchiest, as minimal as it sounds, track from the self-titled album by Stygian Stride, the solo vehicle of NNCK member Jimy SeiTang, whose slowly unfolding, rolling synth vistas provide an idealized image of Tangerine Dream or Vangelis, in a flattened and droneified way. “Drift” keeps the plodding climate of music together with the cinematic video depicting some kind of high-risk theft complete with a heart-gripping cliffhanger at the end. Plus, there’s and old-school Cadillac here, and I’m a sucker for old American land yachts. I’m down for this.
