"There’s some musical story trying to be told here, and your humble author wonders what is?"
Greetings, dear readers. If you’ll remember, one of my earliest writings on Musicouch was a review of Dreiton’s classic ep, reviewing it song-for-song in the same style that I give another major netlabel. We’re here to do more of the same with Dreiton’s second release, the chill “Seltsam EP”. Less banging techno than the the first one, the Seltsam EP still has a nice, chill ambience to it. You can get your copy of that work here.
A meandering tone moseys about, until some kind of humming sound, almost mechanical kicks on, recalibrating itself couple of seconds. Gentle artifacting plays around, before a sweeping sound sweeps intermittently. This sweeping sound becomes the major element of Liner, and everything rolls together well in this tune. A bit past half the song returns to the terse droning that introduced the whole affair. The first tone, more sweeping. There’s a decided verse-chorus-verse-chorus in here, even if the song lacks a single lyric. There’s some musical story trying to be told here, and your humble author wonders what is? This mystery puzzles me through the song’s distorted ending and mysterious stopped-short sound at the final seconds.
