Bones in Motion


The Cyclist


Amoeba Review

03/25/2013

A heady set of grimy electronic textures and intellectual party music all in one, The Cyclist’s stunning new album is an immediately engrossing and nuanced listen. The title track boasts tribal, pulsating beats, but its final third opens up into New Age tones before adding in an undulating bass that ties the whole thing together neatly. “Visions,” which was also available on the Dual Form release, clangs with gamelan percussive elements but forms them into a hip-hop friendly track with deep bass compressed into a tin box of sound. “Makeshift” offers deep house with luscious, wavering tones and clipped female vocals both alien and sexual, while “Mangel” builds slowly and steadily over a three-note synth riff, gradually adding piano chords and a snare about a third of the way, almost a demonstration of how The Cyclist crates tracks with precision and patience, ultimately leading to an in-depth, detailed experience. Indeed, The Cyclist creates his own sound world on Bones in Motion. Once you’ve been there, you may not want to leave. Read More
