The master jammer returns! Black Opal is proud to release this set of four beautiful, sun filled pieces of pure electronic music. Ged Gengras' Personable project is the boiled down syrup of many years spent learning his craft within synthesis. Captured directly from live home studio recording, each track lives and breathes in it's own space. "Gambetti" serves a light structure of rattling snares and resonant bass boops dressed up with gorgeous, almost gothic hanging notes.
"Window" is a funked slice of Ged at his best, referencing grime/garage structure but extended out into am 11 plus minute epic that conjures buccolic idyll, like funky sunshine. B-side opener "Oyster" flips the vibe inward into a more paranoid number, similarly long form and rolling but with all melody turning in on itself and riffs decaying away into thin whispers.
To close; the stunning "Cormorant" forms itself from a bed of padded out bliss. Reminiscent of Oval or Pinkcourtesyphone, the track haunts with a breathy sadness which pulses forwards into squash court squeaks and deep forward facing kick drums. Throughout Oyster, Personable approaches their instruments as a player, no concepts or grand ideas, just playing a synthesizer and doing it so well.
