Review: American-Aussie alliance The Golden Filter are back on Optimo Music again with more modular synth based post-punk inflected electronics. This follows up an impressive solo album by singer Penelope Trappes a few months ago. The London based duo (by way of New York City) claim that they are quite agnostic and unreligious, but there are some Buddhist vibes associated with their music - in the way that it is mindful and aware of impermanence. Beginning with the sultry slo-mo Italo of "End Of Times" while the deep and brooding electro jam "Serenity" is offset by a charming progressive house style chord progression. The 10 minutes epic "Heart Control" is a right thriller: this deep acid exercise in mood lighting is beatless for the most part but when the groove hits: it does it with great impact. Finally the slow burning retro sleaze of "Darkness Falls" has the same charm of Heartbeat era Chris & Cosey or their legendary CTI material.

Review: Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman are The Golden Filter; a duo who formed in New York City but are now based in London. They have released some great music in recent years on their own Perfectly Isolated imprint and of course JD Twitch's Optimo Trax; their new full length Still/Alone being their third release for the esteemed imprint in two years. This follows up that great split EP with France's Morgan Hammer. There's a variety of moods and grooves on offer with this great album with such highlights as "Vibrational" (where they throw down some wobbly minimal EBM business), the slow burning minimal techno of "Now We Get Lost" or the sexy modern coldwave of "Questions" where Trappes sultry vocals could bear comparisons to Beth Gibbons. The irresistible synthpop ballad "Dust" is sure to be a hit on the dancefloor in 2017 too!?
