Bridgetown #78

Ultra Dome
Home Videos

The duo of Rachel Razza (TealFX label) and Jeff Busko (Sky Stadium, Tile, New Future Wanderer)'s recordings encapsulate an optimistic counterpart to the ominous connotations commonly associated with drone and ambient music. "Home Videos" captures the warm, romantic feeling of softened synth pads and bathes them in the murk of tape hiss. Birthed out of the Trenton, NJ basement scene in 2008, Ultra Dome recordings have been few and far between since their formation but are as welcome as any other Sky Stadium-related release for their uncanny ability to raise one's spirits. What sets the duo apart from Busko's solo outings is Razza's subtle focus on rhythm. Murky beats dip below the surface of several songs on "Home Videos," while twinkling synths float on in a simple and carefree manner.
