Marley Carroll has a prismatic array of musical manifestations, and your impression can change based on which part of the spectrum you choose to view. As a singer and songwriter, he penned the eminently danceable indie hit “The Hunter.” As a DJ, he constructs expertly-mixed marathon sets that juxtapose vintage soul, disco and Afrobeat with modern house flourishes. Now, Carroll has focused his attention on rhythm-forward instrumental electronica that is as meticulously-detailed as it is sublime. Taking its inspiration from the natural world, specifically flying and flocking creatures, Flight Patterns represents a new high watermark for the veteran producer. As a producer, Carroll’s early experiments wove the stuttering precision of mid-era Warp (Boards of Canada, Autechre) with the gauzy emotional haze of shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine), culminating in the well-loved debut LP Melanaster. His follow-up, 2013’s Sings, revealed a more rhythmically-driven version of Carroll’s vision, influenced by the galvanic dance floor energy of larger live audiences. A densely-propulsive electronic journey rooted in shadowy forest imagery, Sings received universal critical acclaim, drawing praise from tastemakers like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Stereogum, and was honored with an album-of-the-week nod at Bandcamp.
