    Galactic Melt

    When talking about the music of COM TRUISE (one of the many pseudonyms of New Jersey designer/musician SETH HALEY), the nostalgia bit inevitably comes up, so let's get that out of the way. Yes, his songs tap classic sci-fi and proto-electro in a way that is distinctly early eighties in scope. But they're also remarkably weirdstutter-step proggy and intoxicatingly psychedelic, like those classic touchstones got drunk on lava lamp juice inside a pinball machine. After his well-received Cyanide Sisters EP, a grip of remixes for artists like Twin Shadow, Neon Indian, and, uh, Daft Punk, and a few floating MP3s, Truise's first LP, Galactic Melt, will finally enter brainspaces this summer. And what an appropriate title it bears. For a brief moment, opener Terminal subsumes you in warm, starry-eyed synth arpeggios, and then down the rabbit hole you gofrom the keyed up, skyscraping machine love of VHS Sex and Cathode Girls to opuses like Air Cal and Ether Drift that sound like Doogie Howser's idea of the perfect prom songmathy, forlorn, funky, and mighty in technical ambition. That they're all noticeably cinematic is, of course, by designHaley envisioned Galactic Melt as a sort of film scorefrom the mind, chronicling the lift and death of Com Truise, the world's first synthetic/robotic astronaut, from his creation and life on earth to his subsequent mission to a newly discovered galaxy called Wave 1. Eventually, Truise becomes one with his newfound cosmos, like Pinocchio becoming a real boy, but in the nether regions of imaginary space.

    In Decay

    In Decay provides a fascinating alternative routemap for the idiosyncratic journeys of New Jersey producer Seth Haley - aka Com Truise - through the history of electronic music. A compilation of unreleased, early recordings, In Decay encompasses 13 tracks that have previously been either only available as demos online or are entirely unheard tracks dating from before Haley's official releases - his debut Cyanide Sisters EP, its follow-up full-length Galactic Melt, and last year's Fairlight EP.


    While the '80s-influenced synth sounds, rubbery basslines and sci-fi flavors that inform Haley's later work are in full effect here, they're assembled in manners different enough to make this both a fine record in its own right, and also a fascinating insight into the development of the distinctive Com Truise sound. It also finds the producer exploring a number of facets of that sound, from 8-bit influenced experimentalism to distinctly danceable beats - often within the confines of the same track.


    Controlpop, for instance, announces itself with an intro that sounds like a Commodore 64 being hit with a hammer, but resolves into slow liquid synthfunk that recalls Galactic Melt highlights like VHS Sex and Flightwave. Its slow-burning dance vibe is shared by several other tracks - Colorvision and Yxes, amongst others - while elsewhere, Haley drops the tempo and channels the psychedelic cosmic meanderings of forebears like Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. Dreambender sounds like it should be soundtracking a voyage into uncharted digital innerspace, while Video Arkade cruises along on a woozy rising-and-falling synthline that's like drifting on some sort of virtual reality rollercoaster. Like all Haley's work, it's like stepping into a strange, digital parallel world - a place constructed out of sounds both immediately familiar and yet somehow rendered thoroughly fresh, and a place that's worth staying for quite some time.

    Iteration

    Repetition is a form of change, reads one of Brian Eno's Oblique
    Strategies. Seth Haley knows the concept well, and his style of
    technicolour synth-wave takes the mantra as a challenge. Six
    years after Galactic Melt introduced the cosmic story of Com
    Truise, Iteration now concludes his sprawling saga. True to its
    name, the album is built on Com Truise hallmarks: neon-streaked
    melodies, big drums, robotic grooves, bleary nostalgia. But
    Iteration is also the most elegant and streamlined that Haley's
    singular music has ever sounded.


    At the album's heart is an elaborate narrative, one full of longing,
    hope, anxiety, and triumph. Iteration illustrates the last moments
    Com Truise spends on the perilous planet Wave 1, before he and
    his alien love escape its clutches to live in peace. ...Of Your Fake
    Dimension launches the interstellar drama with its anthemic
    swells and widescreen sound design, before lovesick songs like
    Dryswch and Propagation outline scenes wrought with
    cybernetic pathos. Later, the frantic rhythms of Syrthio conjure
    images of panicked flight as Haley's gorgeous synth melodies gild
    the action in quiet heartbreak. Then comes the resounding When
    Will You Find The Limit , when Iteration's pain and sadness finds
    liberation in the vast unknown. The closing title track ends it all in
    a gush of majestic revelry.


    So goes the winding story that Iteration tells, and yet there's more
    behind its telling. I try hard not to write from my personal life, but
    it's inevitably going to seep into the music, Haley explains. It's
    basically like I'm scoring this film in my head, but that film I'm
    scoring is also somehow my life. There are glimpses of the
    difficult time the East Coast native spent adjusting to a new life in
    Los Angeles, fighting homesickness and burnout while also
    touring the world. It was a time full of uncertainty, transition, and
    self-realization. After a year and a half of living in California,
    Hayley finally recaptured his creativity by finding new excitement
    in his work. I put more air, more breathing room in the
    music-that was the big change, he says. And once that clicked,
    the album just poured out of him. It was like an information
    dump. I feel like I finished the record in two weeks.


    Such a clear refinement of the Com Truise sound took time to
    develop, but Iteration is well worth the patience and persever- ance it cost. Some of Haley's smartest, catchiest work is here,
    from the weightless pop of Isostasy to Ternary's lush
    synth-funk. A song like Vacuume somehow balances massive
    bass drops and smashing drums with angelic gasps, and
    Usurper gracefully pairs subtle poignancy and uplifting dance
    beats. For me, it feels like change, Hayley says of his second
    album, and yes, this is Com Truise like never before. By embracing
    the music's inherent nature and peerless qualities, Iteration finds
    new avenues of expression in its vivid, familiar surroundings.

    Awake Remixes

    Limited Edition Pressed On Deep Blue Vinyl


    Awake represented a high-water mark for Scott Hansen, the San Francisco musician better known as Tycho. Described by Hansen as, in many ways, the first True Tycho record, Awake announced the arrival of Tycho as a full band, and it found Hansen streamlining the group's sound, focusing on the drums and aiming to capture the energy and power of the group's live set. The story of Awake arrives at its natural conclusion with this 12 of remixes, on which Hansen's songs are re-interpreted by producers (including Ghostly artists Com Truise, Beacon, & Christopher Willits, as well as Baio from Vampire Weekend, Nitemoves, and more) who make the songs their own while retaining all of their core elements.
