Com Truise - Galactic Melt (2xLP)
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2011 release from Com Truise, one of the many pseudonyms of New Jersey designer/musician Seth Haley. After his well-received Cyanide Sisters EP, a grip of remixes for artists like Twin Shadow, Neon Indian, and Daft Punk, and a few floating MP3s, Galactic Melt finally enters your brain spaces. And what an appropriate title it bears. Haley envisioned Galactic Melt as a sort of film score, from the mind, chronicling the lift and death of Com Truise, the world's first synthetic/robotic astronaut, from his creation and life on earth to his subsequent mission to a newly discovered galaxy called Wave 1. Eventually, Truise becomes one with his newfound cosmos, like Pinocchio becoming a real boy, but in the nether regions of imaginary space.
