CDX: Lion Cuts tape

Tim Thornton makes frantic, circuit-bent improv electronics as Tiger Village, but his work as CDX is far more melodic and rhythmically structured. These songs have the classic sort of pretty/sad melodies and snappy electro beats of all the best IDM, with moments that are a little more dancefloor-friendly (opener “Friends”) or closer to palm tree racing video game soundtracks (the choppy yet chill “Tiger Breaks”). One track is co-credited to Tiger Village, but it sounds barely more unhinged than the others. “Five Short Arguments”, however, ends the album with a blast of scattered breaks and heavy bass, breaking out of the contemplative mood of most of the other tracks.
