3:12B3 The Antidote Is in the Poison
''With song titles, like “Ascent” and “Lost in Thought” and “The Antidote Is In The Poison,” their minimalist piano, bass, and drums music, which they’ve termed acoustic-electronica, washes you in pleasing and adventurous sounds that allow you to journey to the destination of your choice. They have an impressive history of live shows, playing at the likes of Coachella, Montreal Jazz Fest, and Blue Dot, and I think the only thing that would beat this wonderful wave of classically-trained, electronic-influenced music recorded for us, would be to be washed in the music live.They’ve been compared to electronic bands, like Aphex Twin and Massive Attack, but also classical composers like Debussy and Shostakovich. They had for me the same revelatory feeling as listening to a Radiohead album, minus of course Thom Yorke’s haunting vocals. They are atmospheric, they are evocative. Their songs, while simple at times, are filled with pleasing variations and deviations on a theme. Something that lends itself well to a close listen, so that you travel a great distance in the three to six minutes in the song.'' (NorthernTransmissions)
One development in this album is the use of the prototype Palm Mute Pedal, developed by Danish pianist Otto Sammy, which works to make the live piano sound more like an electronic keyboard. In fact, the last song on the EP was written on synthesizers, but transferred to the live piano, using the Palm Mute Pedal, for recording and the effects are something like they’ve been able to do for years, and make acoustic music sound electronic.
