UK trio Octavcat pop back up with another full length on Uncharted Audio, their first since 2008’s Hard As Snails. As suggested by its title, the music on In Memory Of Old Gear was made with and pays homage to the cherished synthesizers, ageing FX units and dodgy drum machines the group has collected over their first ten years. The star-gazing ‘Diurnal Arc’ is built around kaleidoscopic synths typical of Boards Of Canada. The break-beats and moody synths of ‘Fighting Cider’ and ‘Panstarrs’ scream early-90’s Warp, as does ‘C16 Dual’, with its tightly wound oscillator and glitch effects.
