After a small preview last fall, GPSYMTH released his first full-length album, Ripostes, this past Friday, and it does not disappoint. It's packed full of dreamy synth-pop tunes that shimmer and sparkle like gems in moonlight; moments of pure warmth are soon followed by cool shadows passing over. I particularly enjoy the track "From Blue to Black", with an intro that sounds like a pleasant videogame starting, before it moves into deep mists of vocal layers and sparse drum machines. Perfect for headphones and contemplation, Ripostes is a well-rounded album whose tracks are stitched together from the same soft cloth.
