Digitalis is slowly but surely becoming one of THE premier labels for forward-thinking/amazing ("soon-to-be-noticed") Indie Electronic music (to be honest "slowly" doesn't really do it justice, it more-so happened over night). I recommend you check out some of their catalogue if you get a moment, I guarantee at least one or two new obsessions in there for ya. The latest release from Digitalis that = pure ecstasy is Discover's debut (for Digitalis) LP 'Tunnels'.
'Tunnels', much like the rest of Brandon Knocke's work is an homage to early Synth Pop mixed with Ambient/Lush Space Pop (plus a dash of Junior Boys--I think so anyways..). With every release before this one being free (or close to it I think..) I naturally made the right decidsion by properly absorbing/"discovering;]" & obtaining Discoverer's roots (seriously seek it all out.). And while the vintage Electronic synthesized sounds have always remained the same[ish] an overall push in stronger production, even-more lush dizzy-motion inducing atmospheres, plus a stronger sense of confidence too, it's no wonder 'Tunnels' (the near masterpiece that it is) has me in such a trance. Seductive synths + slow moving/arpeggiated drum sounds + the ability to make me want to both dance and sleep at the same time usually (always) = success between these headphones. What happens when you press play is pure magic, as long as you can except pure magic between your ears (you can can't you?).
HIGHLY "This is so f^%&ing good and you hate yourself for not listening sooner" Recommended.
