I like all this free stuff that people give away in the days of this here internet. We deserve free stuff (isn't there an apocalypse coming soon?). However, with a lot of these free EPs I come across I do find you get some quality lag. With Com Truise that is not the case; this whole EP is rock solid. Com Truise makes synthy music and by that I mean he does everything you can think of when it comes to synth music: Boards Of Canada minimalism, Goblin's weird take on italo-disco, Cure style synth drones, and Beverly Hills Cop pop-dramatics. His music has this sort of ominous feel to it and it's very layered as well. At times it feels like each layer to a song is drawing from a particular influence or genre and he builds it all up, in the end creating something uniquely his own. Take Sundriped for example, it sounds like Boards of Canada with a Cure-ish bassline and some over the top 80's synth theatrics thrown in for good measure. Overall, it's richly textured stuff that's completely absorbing. It's like being dragged off to another planet.
Bigups to No Modest Bear for putting this stuff up, he does consistently wonderful posts so check his page out if you haven't yet.
