It's been almost 9 years since their previous release (https://www.psynews....ming-of-places/) and I'm frankly not at all familiar with their output, but I remember a lot of people listening to the South African twilight psy had them in high regard.

 

It sounds really different to the majority of today's psy, almost like it was actually made 10 years ago (which it maybe was?): full of melodies, expansive sounds, actual bass lines that you can memorise, etc.

just gave this a listen... wasn't expecting much since the last Timecode compilation, Chacaruna, wasn't my thing but this album is a pleasant surprise.

Tickets definitely has a signature sound with a distinctly identifiable aesthetic that uniquely belongs to him. within every track is an element of unpredictability and it never sounds like he's cutting corners to fill air time, as each moment is filled with something of note.

i'm usually not a fan of the victorian gothic, halloween haunted house, hans christian andersen on acid style of psytrance, which this album is filled with, but i can tolerate this. unfortunately there's a few artificial sounding strings and chintzy pianos and though i wish they weren't as prominent, they don't overwhelm the tracks too much.

on the plus side there's a steady theme running through the duration of the album which not a lot of artists bother to do, so it feels cohesive.

probably not an all time classic piece of work but for sure worth having a taste.

That's actually a very apt description!
