Moon Pool & Dead Band – “Humanizer” – [Midwich Productions]
Detroit-based Moon Pool and Dead Band’s David Shettler is an in-demand musician and producer, playing with legendary outfits SSM, The Sights, Rodriguez, Paul Collins, Scott Morgan and many more. Nate Young is known for his work with Wolf Eyes, Regression, Dan’l Boone, Demons and many more. Oddly this music is techno electronica meets the psychedelic eye, in a positive way rather than being a cliche hippie group trying to be hip in the age of electrons. This 2016 release has a variety of directions from swirdly arpeggiator electronica to Detroit 2016 techno to blippy noise montages to slower UK style electronic patterns to retro eighties drum machine and analog synth extravaganza to a detuned synth symphony overture. And those were the six tracks.
