Tigermoth – Effort & Essence

 Electronic 
 LP 

Producer/arranger Tigermoth plunges headfirst into a alchemic and experimental batch of ever-expanding electronica on his latest opus, the Effort & Essence album (HERE). The compositions here are otherworldly and often shadowy, but a notably warm and immersive quality still manages to rise up and pour over the listener as each track progresses from one to the next. For a seemingly one-man show, this is a well executed feat that jackets the album in an ethereal, space-drift aura.
