JESSICA RYLAN "Lush Life" c20 (irfp)

It almost seems unnecessary to write up jessica's stuff at this point. If you're familiar with her work you won't be disappointed. If you're not you have a wonderful world of music to introduce yourself to. Jessica builds all her own synthesizers and having such a keen understanding of their makeup is masterful in her manipulation/exploration of them.

Two sides of synths/electronics, side a being a being more melodic and clean, bouncing about and interacting with each other, creating controlled permutations. Side two is a bit more dirty sounding, with all of the tones having a sort of scratch to them without ever losing sight of what's under the fuzz, a nice contrast to the first side.

If you're reading a review of a tape to decide if you want to get it, it's a no-brainer.
