missing scenes, the newest project from R. Hunter (Snare of Sixes, Conversations About the Light, etc), thrives in its explorations of dichotomies and divergences. “Lectreus” glides across verdant landscapes with its pristine sound design and dramatic spirit. Blankets of synthetic, dreamy pads counteract the pensive reverie buried in strings and analog warmth. Hunter stretches dangling melodies into lamentations that rise toward a shadowy sky. Meditating drones build energy, glowing white until they’re about to burst and fall into oblivion. “Lectreus” sings in cathartic jewel tones.
