Lusine – Sensorimotor

Thursday 16th, March 2017 / 21:45
By Jamie McNamara

Ghostly International

From listening to Sensorimotor, the new album from Lusine (a.k.a Jeff Mcllwain), it’s clear that the Texas-raised, Seattle-based producer has a firm grasp on “forward-thinking” electronic music. Sensorimotor is a compelling album that smoothly blends electro pop, techno, and disparate dance music influences in ways that are far from rote.

The album opens with the ambient jangle of “Canopy,” before fading into the skittering dubstep of “Ticking Hands,” fearuring vocalist Sarah Mcllwain. Signature dubstep shuffle bleeds into a handful of the tracks on Sensorimotor, giving it the impression of more pop-leaning Burial. Lusine has a keen sense of how to balance atmospheric drone with garage house rhythms and melody that place the album firmly on more accessible landscape than that of Burial. “Witness” features a vocal turn from Benoit Pioulard that wouldn’t sound out of place on Miike Snow’s earlier albums. Elsewhere, “Just a Cloud” featuring Vilja Larjosto, is a genuine synth pop hit, slyly-catchy and irresistibly earworm-y.

The album closes with the seven-minute, arpeggiated odyssey “The Lift.” It is a confident production that has had its components whittled down to clock-like efficiency. Like much of Sensorimotor, it leaves the impulse to hit repeat again and again.
