the ORIGINS: deepnet.

deepnet. cover art
deepnet. is the new album from Melbourne's the ORIGINS. The duo of Andrew Wright and Michelle Balestrat make very retro sounding, 80's electronic music. The eleven instrumental tracks are darkish, with simple melodies, fleeting guitar rhythms and minimal production. The tracks conjure up a sense of listening to music meant for background to the various scenes of a sci-fi movie. No grand synthesizer excursions or indie pop statements here. The album lacks cohesion and while enjoyable for what it is, the album fails to engage with a meaningful sonic vibe. Stream and download deepnet. for free at the link below.
