Lone’s late-2010 album Emerald Fantasy Tracks was brilliant, nostalgic electronica, something like a young, housey Boards of Canada. Four months later, he’s back with six new tracks, a faster paced extension of the same classic sound, definitely more dance-centric. Tracks like “Rapid Racer” conjure up something like Zomby’s Where Were U in ’92, distinctly modern takes on old school rave, welcome throwbacks in today’s download age of racing to be first. There are a million thoughtful moments in these songs, like the ambivalent woman just saying “so” at the end of the bridge on “Approaching Rainbow” or the quick "c'mon!" on "Blossom Quarter." Having a single vocal sample is the best thing. Echolocations is available now digitally and on limited edition clear vinyl.
