When Digitalis issued Discoverer’s “Tunnels” in late 2012, I championed it for turning the cosmic soundscapes of Tangerine Dream into something that was palatable and pop-minded – seemingly going against the grain of most contemporary synth musicians.  However, “Mind Deco,” Brandon Knocke’s newest cassette for his Discoverer moniker, does away with songcraft almost entirely, fully embracing wobbly, skyward-gazing synthesizer instrumentals.  Grooves and bubbling rhythms still pop up and exert themselves, but “Mind Deco” is content to drone and drift through neon-clad atmospherics and new age tropes with a confidence not many have.  – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
