The Autumn EP is the fourth and final instalment in Feral Media's acclaimed Seasons series.
The EP opens with Angel Eyes aka producer Andrew Cowie who continues to mine the rich nostalgia of 80's synth music through the warped lens of a VHS player.
Lower Spectrum follows with 'Fall', a piece inspired by the shifting of balance between night and day and the duality of light and dark as Autumn draws to a close and Winter looms.
Lower Spectrum proves once again that music production can contain the grand complexity of a film score and still be suitable for the dance floor.
Golden Blonde relish in their distinctive musical palette, combining striking drum patterns and lush male/female harmonies flanked by warm organ lines that erupt into cacophonous noodling in the track's final moments.
Feral Media stalwart Comatone closes proceedings with Moving Along Away From It, which opens with cut up guitar harmonics quickly followed by swelling acid synth and a driving 4/4 beat. This may come as a surprise to people who know Comatone for his pummelling breakcore and drum & bass but is certainly reminiscent of the self-described 'valium-hop' of his 2007 split 12" Albert and Leonard Put Things in Holes.
The Autumn EP is a fitting end to the Seasons series, encapsulating the diversity and originality heard across all 4 EPs and providing closure on what has been an outstanding accomplishment for the label and the artists involved.
