I have mixed feelings about the newly robust editorial side at Bandcamp. I’m a fan of the site in general, and have worked with the talented new editor in the past (and have written something for the site that was apparently killed, likely due to the subject’s irrelevance). They are covering a lot of music, which is good, but the shotgun approach has so far been highly promiscuous and stretched thin, pushing the views towards the consumer rather than the content of the music.
But here’s one that they got (in my totally self-involved ass-holish opinion) right. This new release is excellent synthesizer music, with not just a classics sound but the classic open-eyed, optimistic view of the future. Ignore the editorial content and just listen (and buy).
The collaboration between two generations of Buchla enthusiasts is soothing and unsettling all at once.
