Deep Politics - Temporary Residence
FILTER Grade: 85%
By Loren Poin on March 9, 2011
Masters of atmosphere, Grails return with a new period piece—though that period is the ’80s in a future sci-fi parallel dimension. Straddling the line between wooshy Sega Genesis menu music and cinematic Pink Floyd maelstrom, Deep Politics is creepy and grand, and at its core is a sonic feast. The songs are lyricless, but one listen to “I Led Three Lives” will render you speechless and possibly thoughtless, but rich in strange visions.
