Cinematic electronic music, Quaker-influenced synthpop, spacious ambient dub, atmospheric chamber music, and exotic instrumentals.
My first impression of Soviet’s sound was a mixture of Depeche Mode and Devo.
Randy Rose is definitely trying for some edgy, dark sound with this record, but never really reaches it.
I sense that Goodnight Star tried a bit too hard to create an album with a predetermined sound.
Jon Sonnenberg and Robert Gutschow’s latest is fuller-sounding than its predecessor, but still contains a few inessential bits.
This strikes me as a full-length that would have been a better EP had more judicious editing been used.
