Minus Pilots' used several electric basses together with an array of memory man delay/looping pedals to create the initial building blocks for 'Signals'. Leaving these bare sketches intact, subtly knitting them together as one piece, Machinefabriek added (sampled) clarinet, strings and voice, creating a lush sonic palette. Presented as one 35 minute piece, 'Signals' is a gentle floating patchwork of hypnotizing beauty.
Certainly one of my go-to albums of this style. Enough warmth, tension, depth, and texture to make this a compelling listen for fans of Sakamoto, Illuha, and Deupree...or people just curious about this genre. Matt Cahill
