Solenoid Supernature

Portland-based IDM composer Solenoid delves into acid experimentation on his fourth full-length, the 303-happy Supernature. The results can be spot-on ("Drack Soul," a worthy Robotnick rival) or a little off (its chaser, the hyperactive "Blowatcher"). But as a concept album based on Solenoid's sketchbook thoughts on nanotechnology, genetic engineering, and futuristic battles, the songs don't have to be on. They're about a world that's slowly but surely getting fucked, so Supernature's union of ambiguous menace and hedonism makes sense. Blinded by science, Solenoid forecasts the future while keeping one ear firmly in 1982.
