Life Coach

I've got another review up at Blurt, this one of Phil Manley's new-ish project, Life Coach.


Life Coach

(Thrill Jockey)

Propulsive, motorik, euphoric and immaculately recorded, Alphawaves splices the super-clean, proggy aggression of Phil Manley’s main gigs (Trans Am, Fucking Champs) with the ecstatic repetition of side work in Oneida. Like much of Manley’s production work, the album sheathes Krautish gnosticism in a glossy technological perfection, somehow finding mystery in sounds that are surreally precise and clear.
