- Following the release of his self-titled debut album in March, and a recent appearance alongside Marcel Fengler and Peter Van Hoesen at Boiler Room Berlin, Olle Holmberg, AKA Moon Wheel, rounds out his biggest year to date with a 7-inch on eclectic Parisian label Wool Recordings.
There's a taut, techy serenity on "Surinam" and "Prosopagnosia." The former, with its tranquil palette of cosy pads and rocking chair drums, leads neatly into the latter, which places more of an emphasis on bassweight and groove. "Prosopagnosia" unearths the eerier facets of Moon Wheel's tastes, as firefly synths dangle over the stormy foundations. Transporting you from twinkling pastures right through to sinister, shadowy climes, the EP is best listened to in full, shining light on Moon Wheel's subtle knack for building a mood.
