Mike DeRoitr Yves Malone is an enigmatic synth mastermind who, in my view, outclasses all other synth throwback acts. This is a very strong album with some rad tape art in the Orange Milk style. It's a perfect artifact. No reason to pass it up. Favorite track: Mega Funk.

DocBenway Ebony Sunrise is totally unique. His music is funky, intricate, weird, sometimes wacky, and undermines expectations. Plus it jams. Yves Malone is a personal fav and he stands out from the pack. I recommend ALL his stuff. After listening to some of his music I turned around and bought ALL his stuff. Check out Cheap Thunder II for a nice representative sampling of his own form of insanity. Favorite track: Cheap Thunder II.

about

"Ebony Sunrise is the follow up to Yves Malone's three-cassette box set of Italo-horror, John Carpenter worship music, and I think he's getting close to perfecting the sound. Or maybe even transcending it. The 20th century exploded so fast that a million branches of underground music ignited and fizzled out before they could even begin to flex their muscles. An album like Ebony Sunrise is simply picking a cultural loose end and honing it, experimenting with it, and generally pushing it forward. Definitely a high point for the synth-underground."
