Mr. Elevator is the project of synth and keyboard zealot Tomas Dolas, keyboardist from Oh Sees and head of East Los Angeles analog recording hub “Studio 22”.
With a new line up and taking a further leap into the myriad world of fuzzy guitar-less synth dreamscapes, comes their third full length release “Goodbye, Blue Sky” out via Castleface Records January 17th, 2020.
John Dwyer writes of the upcoming release: “The drum clock is docking and the night tide washes up synthesized environments woozy and recorded perfectly, in my humble opinion, Mr Elevator has risen and ascended and risen again top floor time and space, he hath bended and brain cells have been rent and spent on the wing aloft and buoyant a perfect rapid eye movement enhancer and Neuromancer.
A capsule garden soundtrack a killer live band Leslie spinning a yarn through the melodious afternoon now its twilight all is well. The most overweight bass sounds abound the crystalline organs blanket breaks and backs the whip crack of the snare is your guide here its pretty fried and boundless in its approach. For fans of Tangerine Dream, Air, Donovan (think the “Hurdy Gurdy Man” LP) The Troggs, Irmin Schmidt, Egg, Stereolab, and even early Mute records.”
