On the heels of 2014’s self-titled debut album, Motor City Drum Ensemble’s Danilo Plessow and Innervisions’ Marcus Worgull reunite for more synth daydreaming under their Vermont alias on their suitably titled second album “II”. The new outing continues where the first full-length left off, strolling further down the luminous and undulating path that the duo turned into, influenced in equal measures by kosmische, krautrock, minimal wave and synth soundtracks.
Vermont’s synth contraptions remain the album’s main attraction, with the extensive array of gear encompassing an entire panopticon of analog bling – from Arp Oddysey and Moog Prodigy to Fender Rhodes, Juno and Prophet, list-studying gear heads will find lots to drool upon.
Vermont’s new album ‘II’ is out on Kompakt on February 10. You can listen to ‘Norderney’ below;
