Loop

Array 1 EP

After a 25-year gap since 1990's A Gilded Eternity, Array 1 is but the first of three releases planned by the U.K. band Loop over the next year.  Four tracks explore their studio space over 32 minutes, each progressively and intriguingly more experimental.

"Coma" is a minimalist exercise that rewards in its subtle melodic shifts among the musical equivalent of buzzing fluorescent bulbs. Immerse yourself and find the silence that follows to be the real shock to the system. With "Radial," all melodic intent appears to be abandoned as the group sounds like they've settled in working third shift at the lumber yard until a Neu!-ish beat comes out of nowhere for a gripping midnight ride.
