Now Hear This: Majeure | Apex

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Majeure returns with a blistering EP of seemingly limitless synth textures and seemingly endless drum fills.

Majeure — the solo moniker of Zombi and Contact cofounder A.E. Paterra — has built a reputation as one of North America’s most interesting purveyors of synth-based rock music. Often overlooked is the fact that Paterra is also one of the world’s premiere prog-rock drummers, a fact that is emphatically obvious on Apex. Over the course of three songs stretching nearly a half hour in length, Apex is an audacious, exhilarating exercise in maximum minimalism — a disorienting journey between dystopian reality and vintage video game illusion. RIYL: Stranger Things, Rush, Zombi, John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream.”
