Aloonaluna/Motion Sickness Of Time Travel: split tape

Aloonaluna/Motion Sickness Of Time Travel: split tape

WCBN got a 2CD set by Aloonaluna a few years ago and I remember enjoying it, but she seems to have blossomed in recent years, releasing tapes on Hooker Vision and Watery Starve, including an epic double split tape with Birds Of Passage, Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier and Motion Sickness Of Time Travel earlier this year. All of the recent Aloonaluna material I’ve heard has been amazing, and this is no exception. “Apnea Method” flutters in with softly shredded, waved vocals and shimmering synths, until the end when the synths bubble up and get squirmy. “Stutter-sleep Dance” is the highlight, a perfectly-named piece which basically ends up sleepwalking onto the dancefloor, starting with ghostly murmuring and ending up with a chant of “get your hands in the air and your ass on the ground”. “Shifty Eyes is ultra spooky, with melted, warped ambience, chirping, cackling birdcalls, and moaning voices. MSOTT’s side functions as a suite, with Rachel Evans’ cascading synths and sad but beautiful vocals, with the peak probably being the climax of “Drawing Down The Moon”, but the calmness of “Aspecting” might be my favorite part overall. Brilliant stuff as always from both artists.
