about

Pure rhythmic, tuneful electronica. This debut CD from the Glimmer Room layers melodic synth lines and arpeggios over mid and downtempo beats with the odd sound effect and some strong clear basses. Andy Condon sticks to a particular formula throughout Tomorrow's Tuesday, but work plenty of variation into the fourteen tracks - mournful synthesizer washes and guitar textures are set up and adorned with well thought-out lead lines which often all shift together to form passages of a different character mid-track. The Glimmer Room, while conscious of the present EM scene, is happy to work alongside the main genres without trying to fit directly into any one current style. Although leaning on the downtempo side, The Glimmer Room's music is intense rather than placid; likewise, despite some dark shadows the sound is dramatic rather than brooding. Tomorrow's Tuesday sounds like the sort of album that could well have developed out of early eighties synth music - but clearly in the setting of the new millennium.
Front cover graphics feature a bold surrealist painting of a hairless female figure tightly boxed in a dimly lit room reaching out for a bare bulb. Indeed this image is repeated inside the CD booklet with framing variations. Subdued hues and tones fill most panels adding to the drama of the imagery. Information is functional - with a complete track list and relevant background information.

Fourteen instrumental (except one) tracks of a fairly consistent mood and method. Track titles such as Last Deep Breath, Borrowed Time, Without You I Would Have No One To Leave and Floating In Formaldehyde hint at the melancholy nature of much of the music. Clearly Andy enjoys synthetic textures and programmed sounds, but unlike many electronic artists, he takes the time to construct tunes and motifs that overlay or interlace where others go for repetition and cycling patterns.

Synthesizer music fans that want some pure electronica without the trance approach. If you enjoyed the melodic pieces being created in the early eighties and would like to hear where that could have developed two decades later - try The Glimmer Room.
