“Trolley Portal” tiptoes in at lightspeed before a quick pause, then jettisons into a bright, mythical universe. Andy Loebs creates their own narrative map that sparks from countless perspectives, leading to this joyful spread of intersecting sonic matrices. Bass slaps dance atop swirling pulses, all of which send askew looks at the cut-and-scrape sax samples and high-pitched repetitive leads. Shimmering synth waves wash through in hyper-color, changing shape and density as they float above the skittering rhythmic fray. This unreal, unique blend of ideas and styles feels impossible from the outside, but everything clicks into place once we’re immersed in Loebs’ delightful soundworld. It’s an absolute wonder.

“Trolley Portal” appears on their upcoming album, Hyperlink Anamorphosis, due out March 24 on Jolt Music. Stream below and pre-order HERE.
