The second album of prismatic slow-burn analog synth instrumentals by the duo of Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes) and Stephen Ramsay (Young Galaxy). Expanding on the hypnaogogic ambience of their warm and uncluttered 2019 debut, Lasek and Ramsay add subtle but scintillating structure and electricity to these four new longform tracks. The songs remain predominantly beatless, but burble and vibrate with more ornate, intentional pulses, arpeggiators and control voltages. Light Conductor’s analog palette of gently fuzzed-out chordal drone, mesmeric ostinato, sweeping filters and drifting levitational melody continues to colour the glowing atmosphere of this enveloping space/trance music: like sunrise on another planet, with a profoundly satisfying dimension of heightened ceremony and design. This music is the opalescent deepspace nebula of a duo whose respective psych/pop/electro/rock parent bands are known for more declaratively epic, chiselled, heavy sonic statements. The through-line is an emotive devotional sensibility, seasoned by a naturalistic studio mastery, and a love for the analog that enmeshes the electronic. Fans of Tangerine Dream, Roedelius, Laurie Spiegel and Laaraji should feel right at home.
