Right off the bat, opening track "Petrichor" straps the listener down with tangled bursts of synth that could ostensibly evoke otoacoustic emissions if played at high volume. Floating clarinet melodies are attacked by processed shards of piano on the jazz-like "Sharp Stones," while pulsing frequencies upset the calm established by the lovely bird calls of "Archipelago." Both "Flight Song" and "Superposition" captivate by crossing new age mysticism with early Warp Records playfulness, the latter oscillating blissfully as it fades into silence. Seer is certainly another step towards greatness for Golden Retriever. (Thrill Jockey)
