Album Notes
The music of Jude Gwynaire can defy categorization; on his latest album, Captain Salty Takes a Trip (Dreamcatcher Edition), it can also defy gravity. In the experimental spirit of Brian Eno and Tangerine Dream, Gwynaire explores the cinematic, transcendent side of electronic music. While synthesizers are often utilized to produce dance beats in most contemporary recordings, Gwynaire chooses to explore, to set certain moods. The result is an otherworldly masterpiece of outer-space jazz and futurist pop, each tracking beaming its own unique and starry-eyed vision. Unlike many other instrumental albums, Captain Salty isn't limited in its stylistic scope. Gwynaire's influences must be eclectic because his compositions offer a variety of flavors. "Moon Siren," for example, dodges the New Age tag with its fuzzy post-rock. Its disorienting atmospherics recall the shoegazer days of the Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine; it even has an ominous backbeat that wouldn't have sounded out of place at a Swans gig. Disembodied voices give it a ghostly feel and whatever trip Captain Salty is taking here is quite unsettling yet it's darkly beautiful. The pulsating keyboards of "Monterey Bay" seemed to have taken a ride with Doctor Who; it certainly has that ‘70s-‘80s science fiction, especially British sci-fi, vibe to it. For prog fans, this is a must-listen. Gwynaire likes to strike a balance between the new and the old, and he achieves it effortlessly. "Night Flight from Electro City" is another surprise, recalling Depeche Mode's enigmatic synth work on their 1990 commercial breakthrough Violator. There are no words, of course, but it doesn't matter; Gwynaire speaks his own language through his spellbinding textures.
