Stereo Hypnosis: Hypnogogia (2009)


Published March 19, 2010

I looked it up too; it means the transitional state between sleep and waking. Óskar Thorarensen – Jafet Melge/Inferno 5 – and his son Pan Thorarensen, aka Beatmakin Troopa, build on the organic electronic of Parallel Island with this woozy long-player, this time produced at Snæfellsnes all the way over… there. No, up a bit. There. By that hut. Yup. That’s the one. The album’s sonics are smoothly distressing, briny and occasionally sonambulant-jazz beautiful, and just when you get a handle on a theme there’s another rhythm to focus on. This is the wildly-wizened warehouse sound of 6am navel-gazing spliffdom that straddles generations – thousands of them, perhaps – and whispers away on the wind with a hundred other half-formed dreams.
