Review by: Luca Maini at igloomag.com

(12.05.05) Finally, the long awaited Wisp debut album is here. After listening to several tracks and remixes floating on compilations, I was curious and excited about a solo work. Since the very beginning of Nrthndr you'll be aware of something special: the alchemy of junglist breaks and uplifting melodic composition of "Negions Fail" works so well that you'll be instantly mesmerized. You must surrender to Wisp's sweet tunes, so beautifully arranged that they smoothen rhythms that otherwise would be called breakcore. "Closing Brydges" is a stunning crescendo from an eerie atmospheric piece to an analog outburst; "Congratulations" is more upbeat and digitalized while "Loophole" slows down with some technoid influence; "1Stop" is a brief trip to hip hop territories but the common feature is that they're all moving and joyful, like no other thing you listened to in recent times. "Untethered" borrows too much inspiration from the Boards of Canada but I can forgive him listening to the acid bleep rave of "Dead Street." The end of this record is simply amazing --before closing with the warm piano licks of "North," it's time for the frantic scattered breaks of "All his might" that, after an epic breakdown, literally explodes into a reece driven anthem full of bass energy and 8-bit melancholia. Nrthndr is a record made up of contrasts between intense rhythms and playful melodies that will stick in your brain for a long time, superb and unpaired stuff. Watch out for a forthcoming vinyl EP on Terminal Dusk.

Reid Dunn takes the melodies and the breaks and interleaves them with news and interview bits from his hometown, Niagara Falls. I'm not going to say that this record is groundbreaking - there are a lot familiar hooks and programming treatments (of all the things I loved from Squarepusher) - but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. This release made an instant impression on me, even if I'm catching up to it years later. I was overcome with the same feeling as when I finally picked up The Flashbulb - more so angry with myself for missing out on this release in the past. Highly recommended. Favorite tracks: Negions Fail.

From Niagara Falls, NY, Wisp has created a fantastic audible journey. With spreads of melancholy ambience and complexities in rhythm that only the attentive listener could capture, this is a treasure of composition. This album sets Wisp apart from his electronic contemporaries by the thought and deliberation which comprises its musical majesty. A Godsend for the forlorn.

I love listening to this while I run. Wisp's ability as a musician should go unquestioned. Buy!
