Following my post of his initial Retrospective CD on Transparency, here are the subsequent volumes 2 and 3 by this L.A. Free Music Society mage and former member of both Monitor and Solid Eye (both posted elsewhere on MS) that were self-released on CDR on his own imprint. The through-line of Thomsen's sonic universe (at least on his solo ventures) has always been a syrupy viscousness, through which his faded cycles of cheerfully cod-spooky and askew melodics pulse. Imagine a cough syrup-addled Danny Elfman orchestrating a Krofft Superstars inversion of Asmus Tietchens' frosty cyclical wooze works under his Mechthild Von Leusch alias and pressing the results on aged wax cylinder discs. The glazed is paramount in Thomsen's fishbowl universe and it's protoplasmic essence ensnares my consciousness like a venus fly trap every time I come within it's soporific forcefield.
