Geoff White departs from his typical minimal techno sound-well documented on releases for Cytrax, Force Inc and Traum-with his debut release for Ann Arbor’s Ghostly. As Aeroc, White indulges his sentimental side, strumming feathery acoustic guitar against ruffled, glitchy beats that mimic brushed snares and cymbals. On tracks like “My Love, The Wave Break,” a surprisingly jazzy sensibility bubbles up in the murky chords, but White never indulges lounge cliches. Instead, as the angular “Rusted Dress Up” and the muddy “Wish Eyes” demonstrate, White succeeds in finding a middle ground between Dabrye’s hip-hop leanings and Two Lone Swordsmen’s most experimental aquatic moments.
