Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom El Monte
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: DFA
Artist/performer/synth-playing couple Gonzalez and Russom come at you with two Tangerine Dream-evoking beatless tech bombs under the supervision of New York men-of-the-moment DFA. Clocking in at a staggering 14.5 minutes, the title track here pecks at you hypnotically for its first half before suddenly landing deep in a briar patch of interweaving melodies; by the end, it extracts itself into its initially Glassian origin. Flip for DFA's late-'80s darkwave-inspired remix of "Rise," all steadfast machine beats and ominous analogue waves. Delectable.
