COLDWAVE/SYNTH Planet Mu turn to the plush synthesised goodness of Polysick to get some high-grade home listening back in their lives. With a keen craft in the analogue joys of old synthesisers, Rome's Egisto Sopor has woven together myriad layers of arpeggiating strands to create a blissed out kind of electronica that engages the brain just as it soothes it. There are occasional beat-propelled moments as on "Transpelagic" or "Preda", but by and large this album shuns the dancefloor in favour of a more esoteric plane on which to enchant your ears. If you enjoy the sounds vintage equipment can generate, there's nothing to not like about this album.
