Space Chimney - "08 System Bonanza"

A warm and serendipitous track which embellishes the typical synthwave sound with detuned chord dives which wouldn't sound out of place amidst the more ambient washes of bands like My Blood Valentine, "08 System Bonanza" is both retro and futuristic, providing you with feelings of nostalgia for a place you've never been. The haziness of the track lulls the listener in, encompassing them in a blissful and comforting sonic blanket. As such, the ominous and noisy tones in the bridge (1:25-1:45) feel especially jarring, contrasting with the peaceful beauty of the rest of the track, but this is a minor detraction from an otherwise lovely piece.
