Syntaks "Sudden Dream"
Denmark's Syntaks craft smoldering, shimmering ambient sounds that are akin to Aphex Twin, but a bit less self-consciously weird and more self-consciously gorgeous. "Sudden Dream" is from their Mistral Moon EP, which Ghostly has decided to give away for free to whet peoples' appetites for the duo's debut, Ylajali, which comes out on November 3. If the track's crystalline production and hypnotic loops are indicative of the upcoming album's sonic aesthetic, then we are certainly going to hear a lot more about Syntaks in the coming months.
