"Cosmic Images is Pulse Emitter's deepest and most personal work to date. Combining his growling modular synthesizer patterns with sweeping keyboard motifs, the beauty and vastness of the universe is evoked in five movements, each based on nebulas, galaxies, etc. The sections morph into one another for one epic prog synth journey. CD in jewel case, mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk, art by Daniel Lopatin. The first release on Daryl Groetsch's private press label, Expansive."
"Self-released CD from Pulse Emitter aka Daryl Groetsch. With titles like "Eagle Nebula" and "Pleiades Cluster" as well as a dedication to "beings on other worlds also admiring the stars", Cosmic Images is set for the heart of the sun, a beautiful series of outer space meditations that connect contemporary synth styles to the gothic black hole of Zeit-era Tangerine Dream/Cyborg-era Klaus Schulze. Sure, there are a whole bunch of solo synth cosmonauts out there right now, but Groetsch is the master of revelatory cosmo-drama and this is possibly his most "beautiful" set to date, Artwork by Daniel Lopatin. Recommended." -David Keenan/Volcanic Tongue

A compilation of ethereal tracks that serve not only as great new age music, but great electronic. There's a whole lot of music here & it traverses vast terrain to the fringes of inner space; you could get lost. Side D gets adventurous. Finally, the packaging of the LPs themselves is beautiful.

Dire Wolves is a free-psych-rock collective with leanings that blends bay area sounds with early 70s German spaces. This one continues forging their path into interstellar space. J. M. Hart aka rowjimmy
