Album Review
The second album from Oval’s Markus Popp and Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner is a masterful study in small, subtle moves. It’s not a quiet record—many of the low-end tones that the duo generates can shake a room if the volume is turned up—but the power of snd lies the sum of its many tiny, precise parts. The pair’s dotted sounds border on the glitch-ambient style that Popp coined in Oval, but Microstoria’s version is less jarring, less tactile, more like rolling clouds than skipping CDs. Their songs are also more sneakily melodic; over repeated listens, what initially can sound like random tonal experimentation reveals itself to be hypnotically structured. Some of it is even hummable, if you give it enough time. But more importantly, snd is its own unique sonic world, an intoxicating journey made up of infinite single steps. –Marc Masters
