Published Jul 05, 2016It took Tom Scholefield four years to put together Caramel, his latest synth excursion as Konx-om-Pax, but the record officially drizzles out of speakers by the end of the week. That said, you can sample all of the sweet and wavy textures the release has to offer right now through an online stream.
As previously reported, Scholefield aimed to present a "joyful cheesiness" with Caramel, this coming after being inspired by "old rave cassettes," Boards of Canada, and early synth poppers Human League. Already, we'd heard the fat, fantasy score title track, but other highlights include the opening beauty of the beatless "Video Club," the nitro-spray synth work of "Frozen Border," and the minimalist instro house-pop of "Beatrice's Visit."
