(New Album Review) Parallelism- Angular Geometry

Parallelism is a moniker of Portland-based composer Sage Taylor, who’s been laboring away at the electronic music thing for over a decade now, equally comfortable crafting lush soundscapes and cunning dub techno rhythms. As Parallelism, quite a bit more of the former can be seen– his excellent new album under this relatively young moniker for Amsterdam’s always reliable Shimmering MoodsAngular Geometry, delves deep into opaque, swirling clouds of dark and lovely ambience. If you have been following this guy for some time now, and want to see a more abstracted side of the producer formerly known as Textural Being, or if you are simply a bystander fascinated with the intersection of ambient and dance music, this would be a perfect point to drop in on what Taylor’s been cooking as of late. Warm, spacious pads and a vague sense of rhythm dissolve into something halfway between Steve Roach and Deepchord, with electro-acoustic details etched in here and there to intriguing effect. Pretty great stuff.
