Comment: Tuomo aka Thuoom aka Thuuooom (he reminds of such avant-garde/experimental music legend as Big City Orchestra in the name regarded case) has issued four albums in 2016 so far, and this 7-notch one is such a sort I cleaved to it more closely. Thereof it could be admitted the title is not at odds with the content. The Finnish producer two previous issues Kaiut, and Aste EP I had commented at Recent Music Heroes as well were remarkably more abstract and austere and I have had some problems to get into them because they did not connect with my soul though did it with my intellect. At the opening Sinking Lift it takes off with catchy rhythmic propulsions to be evolved into a tight labyrinthine poly-rhythmic outfit. Later on, the organic touch will be kept going due to merging together acoustic instruments such as acoustic guitars, toy pianos, and non-instruments as kettles, tables with the sounds of contact microphones which eventually will result in such appearances as smouldering post-rock chugging, and panning ambient insights, and artsy interactions between throbbing cadences and faux-classical/post-classical music (at Coined) where the artist teethed on. For instance, Solarius is a fabulous incantation based on a longing panorama imbued with poignant emotions and beatific melancholy thereby ennobling the listener eventually. Its intellectual approach does not turn you down emotionally. In a nutshell, it is one of the best issues in 2016 so far.
