TIBSLC
Delusive Tongue Shifts - Situation Based Compositions LP
28
Sferic 09 / UK / 2020
Sferic introduce TIBSLC to their ambient flock with a strong debut album of immersive synthetic environments ripe for inhabitation by fans of Jake Muir, Space Afrika, Jan Jelinek. Carefully keeping interest on the waking dream side of torpor, TIBSLC proceeds to shape the album’s experience at liminal, hypnagogic levels of intrigue, alternating its spatial and barometric parameters from light-headed sensations in ’Soft Afternoon Pressure’ to something like an ancient bathhouse humidity in ‘Later That Day.’ We can hear lingering, vaporous traces of ‘90s Likemind experiments percolate thru ‘The Touch Of Your Toes’, while ‘Beachlife’ fees like Burial filtered by Jan Jelinek, and ‘Extended Stay of Blue Sky’ evokes a glorious, aerial motion in its hang glyder swoops, with ‘Nightmode’ lushly extending that feeling of roiling midnight air that practically, gently leaves us pill bellied and swooning.
