Motion Sickness of Time Travel - Motion Sickness of Time Travel (2012)

Rachel Evans continues her pursuit of the synthesised sublime on a new album for John 'Emeralds' Elliott's Spectrum Spools imprint. Fans of her jaw-dropping Seeping Through The Veil Of Unconscious LP, and its follow-up Luminaries & Synastry, will feel right at home with the time-space-warping mantras of this fine effort, the self-titling of which suggests that Evans considers it to be her definitive artistic statement to date. While the utopian drift of 'The Dream' is all well and good, we've always been more drawn to the darker side of MSOTT's output, and this darkness receives its most eloquent expression yet on 'Summer Of The Cat's Eye' - a seductive, sinister piece that tempts you deep into the woods towards a Black Lodge of your mind's own making. 'The Center' is the sound of a sweet and final release - perhaps what death might feel like, if you're dosed up to the eyeballs and very lucky indeed - and the staggering, stargazing 'One Perfect Moment' feels like a holographic collab between Tangerine Dream and Julianna Barwick in the year 2040. Each of the four pieces here exceeds 20 minutes, meaning Evans has a large canvas to work with - that she keeps you gripped throughout is testament to her enormous and evidently ever-growing talent.
