Listen of the Week: Eluvium

False Readings On, by Eluvium

False Readings On also finds Cooper slowly integrating some new sounds into his established template. Though symphonic piano suites have always been an Eluvium staple, you’d rarely, if ever, describe one of Cooper’s songs as “orchestral.” “Fugue State” changes that, however, as Cooper bends his drones and ebowed guitars to evoke the soft strain of singing saw or muted brass. Underneath it all is what sounds like a flurry of synthesized woodwinds; there’s something uncanny about it, a disorientation that’s truly beguiling.
