62 Miles from Space — Time Shifts
(Mega Dodo MEP5, 2017, EP / DL)
by Henry Schneider, Published 2017-10-16
On October 20, 2017 Mega Dodo is releasing the first EP from 62 Miles from Space. 62 Miles from Space is a virtual two-piece music project in Moscow, collaborating over the internet though both musicians live in the same city. Neil Davidson (samples and programming) and Roman Kutnov (guitar and vocals) don’t jam together and they don’t play live, they approach their compositions through email. The title track, "Time Shifts," opens the disc, a composition of swooping glissando electronics, slow chords, and a haunting melody that is a mixture of Euro-pop, Tim Blake, and 60s spy movies. The second track, "The Scope," is an instrumental of drums, electronics, and organ with a beacon-like sequence. Side two opens with the trippy edge of consciousness “Outside” with a 70s vibe and a mono analog synth line. “Bad Actors” closes the EP with pseudo harpsichord, sampled flute, delayed tremolo guitar, and a simple slow 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 note sequence. As their name suggests, their music doesn’t correspond to any particular time, spanning the past, present, and future. And their mail collaborations work remarkably well, much like what used to happen in the 80s with the DIY cassette culture.
