While Central Processing Unit put out great new EPs at a rate of knots, it’s not so often that the Sheffield imprint graces us with a full-length record. Mikron’s 2016 album Warning Score was one of the first LPs to drop on CPU, and three years on the sibling duo are back to repeat the trick with Severance. This is another set of lovely electronic odes from the brothers Corcoran that deftly spins out the CPU aesthetic across the course of a full-length. The combination of gently pattering drums and evocative keys makes Boards Of Canada an easy bedfellow for Mikron.

Mikron return to CPU with their second album 'Severance'. The Corcoran brothers refine their critically acclaimed sound which has evolved to be more haunting than the last release. This album is a nostalgic affair with synthetic landscapes washing over you, before propelling you into the distant future. The ambient moments draw parallels with Boards of Canada, Burial and Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2. Their last album sold out fast, so don't sleep on this.
