Following the critically acclaimed single, The Kelpies, Scotland’s finest purveyors of sublime, post rock electronica return with yet another startlingly good effort.
Like The Kelpies, Tic Tac Toe is lifted from the forthcoming 3rd Iglomat album Iglomat III. But whereas The Kelpies was from the electronic side of Iglomat’s diverse musical spectrum, Tic Tac Toe is a more live affair and unashamedly rock! If still a bit post.
Leading in with a twisted Ennio Morriccone guitar hook offset with a chiming glockenspiel anyone would think this is For A Few Dollars More played out on the Blade Runner set. Vangelis having obviously inspired the soaring synth hooks that follow… or maybe that was Van Hallen..?
Anyway… you wont be able to not nod your head or maybe even punch the air as you can do with the finest post rock electronica made in Scotland, ‘from girders’. Bow down to the might of Iglomat, Mogwai and Boards Of Canada but not that Tycho guy he’s not even Scottish!
What is an Iglomat..? Nobody knows and there certainly aren’t any pictures. Not a one. That might have something to do with the geographical disparity of the players involved or maybe, they’re just shy…
