Wow. Mr. Franks has expanded his palate. An unexpected and lovely departure. Imagine Jean-Michel Jarre and BOC made a love child. And that still wouldn't be doing this justice. I'd love to hear what Mr. Franks would produce with some modular synths.
Liz brings to life more of the familiar, delicate tension that both affirms and condemns in the same breath. Soul searching music that draws one towards the deep center of the unconscious where the contemporary noise blurs and eventually fades.
Delightfully under the radar. My guess is that PBS'73 likes it better that way. Consequently, the purity of the music is evident in all aspects. Mr. Franks appears to be in music for all of the right reasons.
Abul is an example of a true artistic voice that thrives beyond what has become an insidious and incestuous "scene". His music is purer because of this. This collection is a labour of love that is almost tangibly immense in its size and weight yet still improbably delicate.
