Album Review

Axolotl – “Telesma” – [Spooky Action]

mickeyslim   2/29/2012   A Library, CD

This release by Axolotl (pronounced axel-ottle) is the solo output of
Karl Bauer, who says he tries to create a physical experience from the
music, which you experience when throwing on your head phones and
blasting it. Much louder and multi layered than other releases. Static
and voices, melodcally daunting layered electronics create gorgeous
drones and ambient squeeks that make you feel stuck in the colorful
bubble of a lava lamp.
1 Giant orchestral wave of spacey noice that crashes suddenly
2 Space station musical chairs, foggy construction site stuck on spin cycle
3 Sea static stuck in traffic, helicopter dream fades out
4 mermaid chorus with reverb, futuristic copcar sirens, wave of dragon
fire at end
5 melodic EAS test from across church, ends at :04
