    Summary

    The eyes closed EP is five beautifully arranged instrumental songs of filtered polyrhythmic percussion, fat chopped drums, droney synths, pretty string samples and some TV and radio overdubs with anti-imperialist / anti-consumer sentiments. Each of the five tracks stands alone, a four-minute electronic pocket symphony with movements and themes, while smoothly transitioning into the next. A departure from early sample-heavy, loop-based alias productions, tracks laden with washy keyboards and eerie guitar rely more on alias's multiinstrumental talents. Lying somewhere between ambient Brian Eno and Kraftwerk, eyes closed seems akin to Boards of Canada or early Aphex Twin while maintaining some of the boom bap of roots hiphop - at the same time rainy day contemplative and rhythmically menacing. A former member of Deep Puddle Dynamics and The Live Poets, alias has collaborated with every member of the anticon roster, Slug of Atmosphere, Sage Francis, DJ Krush, and The Notwist. He has toured the world, performing with such acts as The Roots, Dalek, Freestyle Fellowship, and Kid 606. Composing music from his deepest shades, alias is a jack of all trades wringing out his heart in song.
