Jay Tholen’s increasingly eclectic body of work touches upon the chip music world in the same way a master chef touches upon a spice in a four course meal. The five tracks here in ‘Vainglory’, his first EP for Pause, dance effortlessly from melody to noise, from ecstatic joy to existential dread, in tessellations so subtle, so intricate, that at the end of its slight 20 minutes you will marvel at the distance you’ve sonically covered.
Copy written by yours truly. If you want me to wax at length about your musicality, drop me a line!
You can also read an abbreviated version of the copy and comment on this amazing release over at Pause.
In the meantime I am working on some show announcements, and recording. Coming soon!
