tpique – Sacred Geometry II
As a week after “that” result draws to a close, let’s have something suitably off-key and IDM from tpique.
Electronic music at its best can be other worldly and slightly off kilter. tpique succeeds on both grounds (despite having a name that always reminds me of posh scented candle maker Diptique). The Dreams You Are In has a generously clattering approach with washes of drone sound and some Burial-style vocal moans. Music for early morning dreams.
The other track is Ubers and Night Wonders. I must confess this Uber thing of which the young people speak is rather beyond me. I’m still stuck in the age of black cabs,, with drivers from Epping or Rickmansworth. This offers motorik and motoring charms. A more conventionally sounding electronic track but very good nonetheless.
