TELOZKOPE – Soft CyclonePosted: April 6, 2015
There’s much more to this solo project by Canada’s TELOZKOPE than the vaporwavey package might suggest and the music of this Winnipeg citizen deserves a better background than soundtracking the ad for some swimming trunks. But that’s the dude’s vision so we have to go with that. Soft Cyclone is rich with ideas, from the vaguely oriental harps and ancient string incantations on “ByzantineCaves” to a pretty dank trapbient on “c r e p u s c u l a r R O A M”, which sounds like a collab between Zomby and Fatima Al Qadiri. And the closing “Derealization” could easily be lifted off a Joanna Newsom album. All-around awesome. Recommended!
