Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois [Timesig 008 Promo]

Fresh on Venetian Snares' very own Timesig label is his same titled collaborational album effort with Daniel Lanois which caters a whole of eight new tunes the two artists produced together, starting with "Mag11 P82" which is fusing plangent vintage synthesizer romanticism with glitching Breakcore, with the two elements following totally different time signatures whereas the follow up "HPSHK5050 P127" weighs in elements of a twangy Space Western sound, "United P92" is going down a similar path, amalgamating the large scale romanticism of a huge red sundown with minimalist Glitch structures over the course of 9+ minutes, although this fusion never fully works out - a fact that goes for most of the albums tracks - before "Bernard Revisit P81" is more on a score'esque, retrofuturist sci-fi tip soundwise, providing the most interesting sonic landscape of this shortplay album. With "Best P54" there's more twangy Glitchtronica, "Mothors Pressroll P131" presents hyperactive Melodic Breakcore for lovers, "Night MXCMPV1 P74" gets back into the romantic, hawaiian twang vibe and "Ophelius 1STP118" explores psychedelic Exotica-ridden soft Ambient /  Easy Listening vibes for those who like to chill out in kinda weird spots. A weird album this is.
