Jonathan Jindra returns to Retronym yet again, this time under his well-established Trills pseudonym. Blue Metabolic Sunrise displays shimmering beauty from start to finish. The first few tracks are trademark Trills, patient melodies crafted around deep kicks and echoing snares with a wall of beauteous twinkles and dischords with percussion that flickers between downtempo and chunky 808’s.
Everything gradually melts into spiraling arpeggios and analogue machinery is forced to squeeze out it’s most stunning of sounds – conjuring up the kind of imagery that would fit perfectly as an alternative soundtrack to something like Tarkovsky’s Stalker. The closing track Flect is the ultimate swan song, a ten-minute long epic which condenses the massive array of shades and styles that Jindra has in his audio locker.
Blue Metabolic Sunrise is also available as an amazingly put-together digipak direct from Jonathan himself. Get the free digital release and find out more about the digipak here.
