Musician James McKeown, better known in the heady electronic music world as Hawksmoor, has put out some of the most forward thinking and far out heavy synth albums in the last couple years. Albums like Methods Of Dreaming, On Prescription, as well as his collaboration with The Heartwood Institute Concrete Island have demonstrated McKeown’s knack for building these crystalline, retro-futuristic sonic palaces. Whole worlds with vintage synths, electric bass, and an overall feeling of finding some long lost album from the mid-70s that combines Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, and a Jodorowsky film score.
