Crafted to implant itself in the narrow spaces between conscious and subconscious, the latest album from LA duo niceFingers is a collection of multi-faceted soundscapes that take turns dulling and sharpening the listener's perception. A liminal tease darting back and forth between waking life and Dreamery.
Opener "Ecliptic" drops us straight into an ethereal space, bouncing back and forth between organic and inorganic sounds. Nick Waterhouse and Dave Schneider play with the opposite ends of the spectrum.
Album highlight "Delirium" invokes a very sexy, 80's aesthetic, reminiscent of a certain Funky Diplomat. "Cosmosis" is easily the heaviest cut on the album, bringing in a dark, post-apocalyptic groove to balance out the overall brightness of the 6-track collection.
The album closes with the title track, a driving, introspective cut, drawing a lot of sonic influences into the fold. One of the standouts.
