From the track titles to the songs themselves, seconds:minutes:hours has the same poetic delivery as Upekah, though its overall tone is more restrained. If you're looking for more of that old Nurture magic, "a candle" nicely scratches the itch, with swelling strings, microhouse drums and the understated sense of epiphany that works so well in dub techno.
The other two tracks show us something we've never seen before: son.sine's dark side. "an island" is ominous, murky and mostly ambient—its mechanical rhythm fades out for good after just two minutes. "a room" has a similar mood but a more thudding techno beat. Neither quite has the spark of "a candle," but both venture confidently beyond Glen's established style of melancholic techno. Whether these are recent productions or archive picks is anybody's guess, but it seems that, even after a 15-year hiatus, son.sine still has more to say.
