LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: Charlatan, ‘Triangles’

The Artist/Album: Charlatan, Triangles (Foxy Digitalis, 2011)

The Reason(s) We Can’t Stop Listening: Brad Rose (Digitalis Industries, the North Sea, Altar Eagle) translates his tape-centric solo project to a thick slab of yellow vinyl with six instrumental pieces that seem to be in search of a higher state of consciousness; one that’s guided by gleaming synth lines, vaporized vistas and deeply meditative melodies. And to keep things more interesting than most analog architects, Rose doesn’t just gaze at the stars. He passes right through them.
