So the third one arrived, it’s like one every second year in the past six. This one’s the result of the Lost Themes and its sequels becoming so popular that he started touring and writing more new music with some family of his (son and grandson). And this is great! The Lost Themes II didn’t strike a cord with me so much to make a note here but this one is here again. I can so imagine the pictures for this sound but as standalone music it is also wonderful, cinematic. Honestly, there’s not much groundbreaking for a Carpenter album but it delivers its promise just fine, very well worth the time and attention.

Catchphrase here is that this is a side-project with Yann Tiersen, and if you want a better keyword for search, try Elektronische Staubband. Great album btw with analogue experimentations ranging from melodic nid-nodders to power noise screamers.
