Known for his recent collaborative record with Sun Araw and the Congo's, not to mention as a member of Robedoor, Pocahaunted and a host of other bands, M. Geddes Gengra's steps out on his own for a proper full-length, operating under his god-given name. Here Gengra's let's loose with two LP sides of sprawling synthscapes. Test Leads calls to mind Klaus Schulze's Dune album or perhaps the Dune soundtrack scored by Toto and Brian Eno, but will also appeal to fans of Conrad Schnitzler and Manuel Gottsching, as well as Robert Hampson (Loop, Main), Bill Laswell, Roger Eno and Nurse with Wound. In a contemporary setting, Gengra's could share a bill with anyone from the modern indie/pop/weirdo/drone scenes and fit right in. His suites range from odd pinball-esque plinking to cold, dystopian soundscapes, touching on all points between; Test Leads would sound good alongside releases on Mordant Music, Touch Music or Innovative Communication. These tracks could easily score the original Tron, the Black Hole or just about any episode of Nova.
