Music from 555 ‘Nine Gates’ CS
I often find myself thinking/saying/writing that Moon Glyph is “on a good run,” but then I realize that statement implies that there has been a point where Moon Glyph was releasing material that wasn’t outstanding, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Either way, their latest release is from Food Pyramid member Chris Farstad’s 555 project in the form of a nine song LP titled Nine Gates. The albums follows up his solid if underrated debut Solar Express, also released on Moon Glyph. Ratcheting up the tempo on his new release, Farstad still delivers lush and hypnotic synth work, but a bit more dancy and bright than his debut’s ambient and Kosmische leanings. It is an collection of songs that both zone in and zone out, a soundtrack to what the label describes as the “now age.” Check out two tracks below to get a sense of the cosmic glow.
