The Revenant Diary
Released: Dec 2011
Label: Editions Mego
After 2010's songful Where Is the Truth, for City Centre Offices, Mark Van Hoen ignores his pop inclinations in favor of darker hues and more diffuse shapes. Returning to the 4-track recording methods he used as a teen in the early '80s, he immerses himself in foggy drum tracks and even foggier synths and voices, sounding variously like a hazier DJ Shadow or Klaus Schulze. Lysergic enough to make most chillwave sound straightedge by comparison, "37/3d" ventures deep down a wormhole of warped tape, while echoes of trip-hop ripple through "Don't Look Back" and "Where Were You."
