Bridgetown #75

Hobo Cubes
Serpensulla Gardens

When not touring in Dirty Beaches, Montreal's Francesco De Gallo is constantly weaving elaborate tapestries of analog oddities and digital detritus under the guise of Hobo Cubes. The eccentric synthesizer composer and curator of the Hobo Cult label covers a wide range of musical territory for his new album on Bridgetown, varying from the mellow time-warp of "Bending the Love You Keep" to the swirling arcade of twisting arpeggios in "Fragment Fusion" and everywhere in between. On this 6-song album, Ouellette has once again sculpted a thrilling cyberpunk paradise from a binary vision. The glowing alleyways of "Serpensulla Gardens" pulse with a datastream heartbeat, racing between crashes and fixes of their inhabitants, dead pixels spilling out across a wireframe floor only to reconstruct anew and burn out even faster than before.
