Neon Genesis: Soul Into Matter² by Meemo Comma

Not just another imaginary soundtrack

The best albums usually take a few rotations to seep in to your psyche before that exultant moment of self-realisation hits and Lara Rix-Martin's fourth LP fits that bill precisely. With just the right level of earwormy melody, the first few listens snag you but only after repeat listens does it slowly reveal a darker, more challenging proposal, and ultimately a fine balance.

The idea of an imaginary soundtrack isn't new but the subject of a genderless, computer-charged utopian future inspired by Jewish folklore certainly is, and Rix-Martin juxtaposes soothing synths and roughshod rhythms with breakbeats and filmic samples of Kabbalah texts to present an arresting experience.
