Novel 23 Architectural Effects
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: Bip-Hop
Flat, wide golden discs of tone spin along planar expanses, forming the foundation of Novel 23's experiment in building a better beat. Architectural Effects is all square angles, straightforwardly melodic, and solidly synth; it so verges on a Discovery Channel-esque vision of the future that you half expect an animated diagram of a space station to rotate before your eyes as you listen. Still, Novel 23's music pleases with its easy symmetry-set your mind to "unmanned flight" and float on.
