Side 2
1. "Ancient Shorelines I"

If Ridley Scott was a smart man (and those who've seen Prometheus would contest this) he'd commission Steve Moore to compose the soundtrack to his mooted Bladerunner sequel or at the very least license the tracks that Panther Moderns, this long overdue second release for the LIES label brandishes. The eponymous William Gibson referencing track opens proceedings, channelling Vangelis's famous OST work unravelling an ominous bed of droning textures that seem to drag you to the cusp of infinity before a lollopingly slow techno beat surfaces caked thick with bass and joined by a brutally bleak pattern of synths. In contrast, "Beyond Tyken's Rift" hints at lighter times, a subtle yet definite euphoria building throughout this ebullient exercise in modern cosmiche. And then we come to "Ancient Shorelines I" a track that really allows Moore to indulge his penchant for epic soundscapes; heavy and haunting arpeggios intertwine with a deathly kick, with the eventual appearance of intricate percussion the prelude to the track unfurling into glorious incandescence.
