Quietly building an enthusiastic following with a steady stream of EPs andsingles, M.O.O.N.'s debut full-length 'Clinically Blase' creatively navigatesa wide range of emotive synthesizer music deviating from dancegearedtropes in favor of freer arrangements and lush instrumentation.While the rhythms are rooted in variants of house, boogie, and synth-pop'Clinically Blase' never tips it's hand stylistically in any particular directionresulting in a playful balance of retro sounds and futuristicideas highlighting a deft melodic sensibility.Separated by interludes, 'Clinically Blase' is split into three sections thatexplore variations on similar themes and shared sounds recording livepercussion, guitar, piano, and bass in addition to software instruments andclassic analog synth gear.The album's beatless opener "Pilot" signals departure with a vocal looprendered aquatic over bright, ringing piano chords - sounds which makeappearances again on the album's arpeggiating centerpiece "Alicia" and onthe closer "Finale". The smooth "Time" unwinds with unexpected jazzychords and expressive treated trumpet lifting it skyward. There are plentyof moments made for movement with the ecstatic drumwork andstratospheric pads of "Jon F", the bouncing 303 of "Leaning In", or thefunky slo-mo arpeggiated disco roll of "Medium Cool". The sequencingties together 'Clinically Blase' into a compelling journey, ebbing andflowing in energy, timbre, and tempo much like a thoughtful, continuousDJ mix.
