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.
