æuvre explores a complex, narrative like direction through the 8 tracks of crystalline early Yamaha-esque FM synth lines and layers of perc that work way overtime. Opener, Unclouded, offers a simple but absolutely sub pumping reintroduction to the classic melodic and rhythmic subversion that stays on point throughout. Cliffs builds on the soundscape direction - calling back to Oxvac’s techno leaning Recordings 7 & 8 release. Further threading the intricate line of soft soundscapes and busy rhythms, Southlark not only summarizes æuvre well, it stands out melodically with a mesh of phase distortion like swelling patches and plucky arps. Chamber then converges back on the expectations built up in the first 20 or so mins and seemingly manipulates them with ease resulting in the most rewarding breaks, shifts, and solo sections of the selection. The closer, They Dislike You, is the nostalgic tear-jerker (if there was one). It feels like the acoustic version of turning past the last page of a great book. Oxvac has a perfectionist knack for finding the right ear candy and meticulously exploiting it. This is that at its best (yet again).
