Review Summary: An amazingly well produced EP. Recommended for anybody.5 of 16 thought this review was well written
Lustrous Glow is a one piece ambient electronic project, consisting of sputnik user Climactic. The EP opens with Endless Exhale, a mellifluous track that merges an acoustic guitar, Synths, the slow paced rhythm of a kick drum and the gentle harmonization of a piano, giving the introduction to this EP the perfect relaxation vibe.
The EP has four tracks, all with excellent production, so good that it can be compared to Daft Punk on the album Discovery, especially on the song “Lost in Thought”. Throughout, the drums sound crisp, smooth and calming and overlap the ascending and descending echoed synths. But this is not all it has to offer, the EP has post-rock influences and on the bridge an electric guitar can be heard, making the song sound dark and mysterious.
The song “Solar Flare” is much more uplifting than the over tracks, although equally as enjoyable and relaxing I found this to be the highlight of the EP. The synths are louder, high pitched and more euphoric sounding.
There is nothing offensive about this EP, it’s creative, fun and although it’s slow paced its exciting. It sounds professional and the drums sound absolutely amazing. A must listen for fans of all genres, especially of electronic music.
This EP is well thought out and in no way rushed.
