TIME WHARP ‘Spiro World’

Jun 17, 2022 | Electronica, Reviews

An exquisitely mellifluous display of electronica

Kaye Loggins a.k.a. Time Wharp, the Brooklyn based multi-instrumentalist and producer, continues an intensity innovative creative path with Spiro World – a new full length release of “love letters to New York” touching on “somatically profound personal experiences” when encountering “heaven and big pharma hell on earth.”

Lead single Lupron may put you in mind of Loggins’ previous elastic electronica, but Spiro opens the doors far beyond any preconceptions one might hold. Remember this is an artist with a love of improvisational live performance, and will jump at the chance to present a two hour radio show lauding the work of Harold Budd.

With guests providing woodwind, cello, and marimba, nothing appears to be out of reach as we’re steered through an exquisite set of mellifluous studies. Interlocking structures can recall Steve Reich, or the freer feel of John Adams’ Hoodoo Zephyr; at the same time we’re drawn back to contemporaries such as Rachika Nayar. It’s an exhilarating sound making for one of the freshest listening experiences of recent times.
