Another one of a kind album out of Jay Tholen. Tholen's serene use of electronics, samples, and his own voice evoke a very specific mood. Something between a one man band and a one man church. It is authentically Jay Tholen though.
The religious, heavily introspective focus in the lyrics, along with soft, floating notes. This album flows between tracks and will feel over in an instant. Like most Jay Tholen albums, pay attention to the opening and closing tracks. This guy really knows how to bookend an album.
It's been a while since I sat down and listened to the music of the man who created some of my all time favorite albums. No specifications or qualifiers. Tholen has a very unique view in all his art. I first learned of Tholen as a musician though, and always felt he brought that unique view, even in his early chiptune days. Hope Jay Tholen keeps creating things for a long time.
