about

The debut LP from Retic. Released in 2007. Some albums just feel warm, comforting, like a winter afternoon under a familiar blanket with loved ones. The early Boards of Canada records achieve this feeling (seemingly) effortlessly. Retic aims at the same mark, and hits more than he misses on this tasty platter. Saturn‘s focus is on the details, the tricky interleaving of keen beats and sly sine-wave bass with crackerjack melodies. Overall though this record feels like home. Not made-in-bedroom home, but that complex mix of stimuli that combine to evoke the simple gestalt of home, however one defines it. At times Retic turns to a pastoral, near-ambient vibe with “The Successful Begin Sleepwalking,” following it up by mashing that vibe with industrial percussion on “Trunk Junk.” Retic is quite skillful at mixing the two, adept enough to bring in elements of classic IDM on “Lose My Gain” and soundscapes as well. The mashup, finally playing itself out in the culture at large, finds here new life simply by returning to its roots — mixing disparate moods, not disparate artists. At times approaching alchemy, Saturn Day Trajectory continues to surprise and evolve over repeated plays, especially on headphones. -Jericho Maxim / Igloo Magazine
