When Cuticle’s scrambled technoid formations streak the sky they’re immediately recognizable – a holographic mix of zero gravity bass, asteroid pads, lunar acid dripped like candlewax, and poems whispered through air ducts. Brendan O’Keefe’s phantom touch has been distinct since the project’s origin but Mind Holding Pattern feels more realized and revelatory than ever, nine CGI terrains rippling with alien voltages. “Antigogglin” and “Faberge Tear” spywalk stealthy outer rings but “God Still Cannot” and “Beg To Exist” come down thick like psychic visitations experienced at desolate desert raves, interdimensional and disturbed. It’s music of mutagen waveforms and wobbling grids, programs buffering to align. The naked hands glows stranger in the moonlight.
