Lush experiments in acid.
The jiggling mass of 303 and 909 sounds on "Anxiety" rises and falls, while the subtle, underwater-sounding background bloops add more texture. The excellent "Virtuous" has a slow, tense build, backed by a manipulated 303 loop. When the beat fully drops in, it feels industrial, sparse and tightly wound around the kicks. The B-side is more chill, but no less dynamic. "Trance Dream" opens up, plant-like, unfurling its filtered synths into a lush, drippy world. "Transit" plods along in the way of recent Eric Copeland tracks, with the wash of Balearic tones and background voices creating the feeling of an intimate gathering, or a moment of pleasant introspection. Forever In Transit makes a fully formed statement of its own, so it'll be interesting to see where Overland takes her acid experimentations.
