Steve Moore & Majeure-Brainstorm

This EP yanks apart Zombi’s two major creative forces and lets each member explore his own on little miniature planets of sound. Brainstorm is divided into two sides, the first being made up of four tracks by keyboardist Steve Moore. These should be enough to satisfy fans of the bigger band; they’re largely the same ’80s genre film soundtrack-recalling instrumentals, full of piercing and arpeggiated synths (i.e. perfect music to get chased by Jason Vorhees to). The fast-paced “Enhanced Humanoid” is the most compelling of his contributions.

Listeners should stay, however, for drummer Majeure’s half, which is dedicated to one 20-minute soundscape, menacingly titled “Atlantis Purge”. The piece weaves through genres ranging from ambient drone to a prog-ish, Tangerine Dream-esque synthesizer suite in its latter minutes. It’s all about building atmosphere here, and if you let yourself just sink in, it’ll make for a heady, extended trip.

        WNYU, NYU’s radio station. At the moment I have a nearly listener-less internet show, so not too exciting, but I enjoy putting it together. And since I found it a few weeks ago your site has become a prime resource for new jams.
