Metronomicon Audio has always been fortunate that its artists produce unusual melodies, for your unorthodox listening pleasure. This is particularly evident with this S.L.Y.C. album. Sara Cools appears to be Metronomicon’s least manic songwriter (thus far), so listeners can expect something a little more laid back with this release. This may lead one to think of the album’s melodies as somnambulent, drifting to the ear from some imaginary faraway temple, but the music is possessed of great immediacy – this directness coming from the strong presence in the recording of band performance. The duality particularly reveals itself on the song ʿWhite Noiseʾ. Another tune to which attention can be drawn is the finale, ʿMiniaturesʾ, which at over eight minutes fully explores its own volcanic potential, a long melodic playout ending in ambient noise – though not deafening noise, you understand.
