The Gulf Stream - Cinematic Landscape
By Daniel SylvesterWith their second EP of 2012, the Gulf Stream provide the listener with four more streaks of electronic chemtrails. Keeping with their blend of rounded beats and clouded melodies, the Montreal duo chose to stick close to the script on Cinematic Landscape. Covering just 15 minutes of space, much of the EP explores singular ideas, as "Turquoise" and "Grid as a Third Wheel" structurally resemble production house muzak more than that of other similar-minded artists such as Keyboard Kid and Clams Casino. With a production sound that's both lifeless and plastic, "Anatares" and "Sin Solarium" come off D.O.A. before each song can enter its mid-track payoff. Performance-wise, Cinematic Landscape is a fine example of post-hip-hop ambience, but it's the Gulf Stream's execution of the material that leaves a chromatic, artificial taste in your mouth.

Thanks for the review, too bad you didn't like it though it looks like someone forced you to write it. Just an impression like that.
This EP is in fact the second and last installement of the music presented as Live PA named Trajectoires AV at Mutek last june with the Videast Vj Ma". See for yourself some lifeless, plastic and D.O.A live audio and video here vimeo.com And you know what? None of us can play the guitar. Ridiculous right? Thanks again for the attention, Jerome for TGS
