4 stars Tyler Green and his colleagues are in good company with the Electric Orange crew somehow, if only because they are also placing riddles, as there is the wondrous order to mention concerning their 'Transmissions From Teleos' series for example. And the facebook page briefly reports this Oakland based oufit playing doom jazz ... okay ... maybe ... I'm not sure if they really take this seriously though. However, probably this is put to reflect the direction of development music-wise in general?

Just in good tradition already 'Transmissions From Telos Vol III' marks another LUMERIANS release which is solidifying a preference on a keyboard emancipation. Yes, again the synths rule, electric guitars are mostly reduced on some rhythm work, just in case of a (definitely nice) side effect more or less. Composed of four tracks their new album is admittedly hypnotic, assigned with a trance vibe, which usually means a clear reference to the related space and kraut rock genres. Playing decidetly monotonic, a strong rhythm fraction builds the band's backbone, like being on a perpetual loop.

Despite or maybe even just because of the hypnotic flow this album is a pleasant relaxed listen, equipped with four very melodic explorations. By way of example let me highlight the captivating Turiya - a halting slow-tempo exemplar - which is departing from the plan a bit, quasi showing synth and guitar enjoying emancipated rights. This sounds close to, or is - as for the approach at least - comparable with German neo kraut bands Camera and Electric Orange. Recommended - fantastic to notice that they do not run out of inspiration.
