Having already cast the possibilities far and wide with their first two releases, Peder Mannerfelt and Par Grindviks Aasthma project launches into a third-round with yet more stylistic tropes explored, manipulated and mutated through their particular production lens.
Army Of Love is perhaps the most direct track the duo has yielded thus far. Theres a hazy, ravey nostalgia to the swooning pads and twitchy breaks that underpin the track, while Penelope Trappes coolly delivered vocals add a dash of simulant futurism on top. The off-center bass that roundhouses from down low completes the package and acutely adjusts the angle of the track, adhering to Aasthmas omnivorous M.O.
The Task looms large on the landscape, all half-stepping lurch and vivid daubs of downcast melody that comes on like a funereal tomb-shaker for heavy-hearted dancers. The insistent crags of the crispy snare provide handholds for those seeking to scale the mountain, but theres naught but lashing synths falling in fat drops for anyone who makes it to the top.
