Iguana Moonlight: Wild Palms tape

This enchanting tape features synth tones surrounding by lots of rushing waves and squawking seagulls. The synths sound lonely but also a tiny bit playful, especially in how some of the notes swoop a bit, and they bring to mind Fumio Miyashita’s early ’80s material. There’s nothing harsh or even really dark about this album, but somehow it doesn’t seem very new age. It doesn’t seem like meditation or healing music. It sounds like, well, being stuck on an island, and feeling both free and trapped. It’s celebratory but also a little scared. It’s fun overall, though.
