Pulse Emitter: Dusk

Pulse Emitter’s second Hausu Mountain full-length is up there with the best of Steve Roach in terms of synthesizer music which evokes lush natural landscapes. Electronic music rarely feels as aquamarine as “Cloudside Dwellings”, a rippling, tunneling seaside expedition. More curious, fantasy-like new age pieces follow, with “The Road to Thrax” having more of a mysterious, haunted portal feel, but there’s also touches of playfulness to this music, even when it seems to drift down a forbidden path. “Fireflies” is pure magical forest music, and “Snow Diamonds” is essentially holiday season music for synth freaks. “Darkening Forest” is an accurate name for something that grows a bit more ominous, but “Mulch” feels like waking up and realizing you’re stuck in a blizzard, with a few sporadic gusts of wind blowing snow this way or that.
