The Needle Drop

Clear Tamei and Steel Mogu deepen the sound and lore of Iglooghost, though hopefully his next full-length album will do so to a greater extent.

Pitchfork

As the hero’s soundtrack, Clear Tamei is showered in light and delicate electronic sounds that cut through the overwhelming density of Iglooghost’s music.

For something so deranged, this EP is magnificantly stitched together by vocal scraps that weave in-between tracks. This is, to me the most serene and melodic Iglooghost has ever been, with great buildings of sound, that for once you can hear being built and torn apart, yes, it still has its hyperbolic moments but they are juxtaposed by calmer oceans of sound that give purpose to the sugar-skyscrapers of sound that black out the traditional bpm-sun. This isn't just chaos for the sake of ... read more
