I love the title “Moss Covered Technology.” It instantly brings to mind so many vivid images that it takes a minute to finally settle in and concentrate on the song in question. BMRN turns in his latest album, Immersion / Drift / Accretion / Shift, for the newish label, Eilean. “Moss Covered Technology” anchors the middle of the album pairing slowly-shifting electronics with a skittering beat that acts as the guide through a post-apocalyptic landscape where the forests have reclaimed the cities. There’s a sense of joy and relief throughout, like the natural order of things being returned and BMRN is finding a way to celebrate.
Immersion / Drift / Accretion / Shift is out tomorrow on CD and digital.
