Description

Pye Corner Audio - Entangled Routes

Entangled Routes by Pye Corner Audio, is the third part of a loose trilogy of albums starting with Stasis in 2016 and followed by Hollow Earth in 2019. Each album is a kind of high concept sci-fi epic, the latest instalment of which plays with the idea of mycorrhizal networks and human attempts to listen in and communicate.



Martin Jenkins builds a compelling soundworld from minimalistic synth sequences and dance floor abstractions. His masterful sound design creates a sense of awe and vast space, as he takes us on a fantastic and exciting voyage from peril to redemption.



With artwork as always by Julian House, the LP comes on heavyweight vinyl with full colour inner sleeve and free download code card.

Reviews

Certainly, this is some of Pye Corner Audio’s strongest output to date. The synths have never sounded better… Press play and it works its magic, imprinting its strange and fantastic visions direct onto your mind’s eye.
UNCUT

It’s hard not to draw a Brian Eno comparison, as this is an album that manages to distil big, overarching concepts into accessible, and (above all) enjoyable soundscapes.
QUIETUS

minimalist synth sequences that are slow building and tense, with agitated pin prick rhythms and pulsing stabs evoking a vastness of space and the associated emotional states-from agoraphobia induced terror to wide eyed wonder.
MOJO

'Growth Potential' is dubby death disco that suddenly blossoms into a steely utopianism, but 'Leaf Mould' is like an undead Kraftwerk risen from the grave, suggesting that all those shiny dreams of 'Europe Endless' will one day just be decomposing ruins in the loam. But it ends with a banger, the spare synth bass and lovely spiralling high arpeggio of 'Symbiosis' offering a message of hope that man and nature can still learn to live together and communicate, rather than destroy each other.
