Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson of Golden Retriever look toward the cosmic and the karmic, favoring set-it-and-forget-it synth jams that seem ripped from 1970s Germany; theyre scientific and mechanical in their construction, but they still imbue their work with emotion. Perhaps because they come from free improv backgrounds, Golden Retrievers early cassette and CD-R releases leaned toward steady-state, circuitous instrumental pieces rather than the dramatic engagement of their recent work. Seer, their second record for Thrill Jockey and third LP overall, seems particularly laser-guided in its looping and loping melodies. It continues the careful editing that they practiced on 2012s Occupied with the Unspoken: synth and saxophone lines pop in and splatter the void, and tracks are given room to breathe and unfurl, but theyre never lackadaisical or laborious. Sielaff and Carlson may cop the aesthetics of Klaus Schulze, but on Seer theyre content working on a smaller canvas.
The duos increased discipline is most readily identifiable on the interlocking and overlapping instrumentation on Flight Song. Carlson sets up an asteroid field of pinging synth parts that Sielaff casually weaves through and around, embracing the reedy squeals of his instrument instead of obscuring them with a mountain of effects. On Superposition, Seers lengthy closer, the duo wrangle serious timbral diversity out of their creaky gear, as Sielaffs processed sax peals make conversational counterpoint to Carlsons crystalline atmospherics. Before Carlson launches into the sweeping arpeggiation that gives the song its dramatic momentum, its the most relaxed moment on the record, but even when the duo stretches outon Superposition and Sharp Stones it never feels like theyre padding time or wasting space. When Carlson slows down the tempo and Sielaffs work becomes more protracted, these spacier segments set up the more propulsive sections.
Golden Retriever has carved a niche thats not strictly indebted to post-Berlin School ambient or to the more organic work of new age composers but rather snags details from both aesthetics. Its transportive stuff when its done well, and on Seer theyve distilled each of the five tracks down to its basest parts, making each feel like a succinct and potent journey in its own right. Albums in this vein can seem like an argument for sprawl, but Seer makes a case that a wondrous interstellar trip can still be focused.
