The Dying Seconds – Overtures

There are a couple of free albums doing the rounds that really deserve a hefty price tag such is their goodness. The Dying Seconds eponymous is certainly one of them, it so well endowed with lyrical (non-vocal) entities it sometimes makes me emotional. This is a duo (David Cantan and Jack Quilligan) who have the gift of making machines sound almost human, electronica with a beating heart and a spirit that needs to be nourished through people interaction. There is a hint of voice on ‘Overtures’ but it’s the sound that comes from the Dying Seconds laptops that communicates even more effectively. This may contain the spillage from another tune (‘Goodnight Satellite’) but it unmistakably ploughs it own furrow in a way that is nothing less than epic. Tears cascading down a cheek were made for audio like this. KD
