I need to write and share something positive. Something stirring. Something I cannot do without currently. Even if that brings only a few minutes respite from the other writing in my life.

I cannot stop playing the new Moderat album III.

The album sees the trio produce a sound of such solidity and clarity, it is as enriching as it is dark. The techno tracks have evolved and produced near perfect electro-soul-pop songs. And in an almost cruel way there is something deeply satisfying for me knowing that the Moderat project is such a tortuous one. Being aware that the union of Modeselektor and Apparat in pursuit of brilliance is difficult - they named their original EP akin to 'At The Cost of Health' - gives me hope working on my own tumultuous, but generous project.

Running is too fitting.
