"Teenage Birdsong" treads the heartfelt, holographic dreamworlds that we explored on "There's Is Love In You". With a slow, creeping dynamic decorated by a mellifluous synth-wind motif it conjures up futuristic images of augmented realty and a new Global Optimism throughout the homo sapiens network. Avalon Emerson adds vibrant drum breaks creating more drama than the slight serenity of the original.
Rising stars Truss and Tessela, each with solo success under their belt, drop the next flawless addition to their fledging catalogue with a remix that's seems so quintessentially suited to Text you can almost see Keiran Hebden gleefully smiling in disbelief. Containing the expert, frantic drum programming the pair are fast becoming famous for plus taut atmospheres and tasteful flickers of dance music tropes from across the years, their remix of "Teenage Birdsong" is an epic piece in its own right.
"Dreamer", a final flurry from Four Tet utilizes the same dreamy, celestial palette of sounds as "Birdsong" and adds the slippery, gliding 4/4 beats that fuel much his work. Delicate plinky plonk leads and glassy bell tones, combined with flutters of bird song make this truly hallucinatory, 'enchanted garden' type affair. As always, truly hi-tech and exhilarating stuff from this UK luminary. Recommended!
