WHAT YOUR EARS SAY & THE COVER LOOKS LIKE
WHAT WE SAY
Temporal Marauder have just been reincarnated through the Ketu Recordings rebirthing program, exuviating the experimental excess for a pleasingly accessible, retro futuristic, sometimes sweet sometimes soaring, but always psychedelic soaked synth pop body.
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY
Temporal Marauder is a fictional band that became a real band. Helmed once upon a time by the legendary French synthesist Jean Logarin for its Spectrum Spools debut, Makes You Feel. The project recently, if temporarily, solidified into the actually-existing duo of Joseph Raglani and Erica Sparks. Brought together by their mutual appreciation of the haunted psychedelic lounge music of Broadcast and Stereolab, this second iteration of Temporal Marauder was bound from the outset to focus its attention on how our attractions and affections are mediated by the fantasy of what two people can share, while remaining limited by the reality of what they can’t. In keeping with the filmic bent of their inspirations, The Shape of Love explores the ways that every love story is also a mystery, tracking the bittersweet struggle to let the present weigh more than the past. It captures the unsettled confusion of romantic ascent with descent, and the foreboding premonition of how endings tend to embed themselves in their beginnings.
