Tamed Animals

"Pleroma" sounds like a collage take on IDM, post-rock and dream pop, like if Geogaddi-era Boards of Canada blended together bits of sound ideas from Sigur Rós and Radiohead. On Redefinition, Dan Barnett has crafted a melancholy yet expansive set of music that suggests night travel by air over an urban landscape lit only by the moon. Organic and electronic sounds weave together seamlessly in stark harmony for an effect that would fit perfectly in a movie about the Aztecs first stumbling upon the sprawling ruins of Teotihuacán and being awestruck at its mysterious grandeur. "Volenska" conjures imagery from Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker, while "Shadows Recede" casts off the album's mood of alienation but loses none of its sense of wonder.
