Logreybeam | It's All Just Another Aspect Of Mannerism (Type)
Inhabiting a world where downcast electronics caress the components of classical overtures, LA musician Gabriel Morley utters not a single word, yet has our ears transfixed with virtually every breath. Sci-fi lullabies for lovelorn cyborgs, his Logreybeam disguise sways to an aching mechanical heartbeat; echoing Aphex Twin's boxes surfing on sine waves whilst their master sleeps soundly elsewhere. Also a touch reminiscent to Future Sound Of London when they really did sound like the future, 'It's All Just...' tenderly tilts and throbs in suspended animation, reaching some sort of crescendo on centrepiece Muado. The airless ambience of this world will spin in your head long after those feet have dropped to earth again.
